Normally I would say WOW! But today I am going to say ROAR! We are super impressed with the efforts and levels of creativity that the children produced for Dino Day! Children came in their wonderful homemade costumes and produced outstanding home learning about The Cretaceous Period. The aim of today was to engage children with Dinosaurs, as part of their Evolution and English learning this term. Scroll down below, to see a wide range of activities, from fact files, homework, fossil enquiry, estimation and scaling, scientific drawings and dino dancing!
- Name three key facts you learnt today about dinosaurs and The Cretaceous Period.
- Compare life today to life The Cretaceous, how is it similar and different?
- Are there any animals that exist today that have adapted from dinosaurs (use research to support your answer)
We were so impressed with the creativity, time and effort that had gone into creating our mini dinosaurs!
WOW! We were flooded with expert knowledge from the children, below are examples of some roarsome homework!
Our Dino Dance
Palaeontologists studying fossils
Scale Factor challenges – Estimating T-Rex foot size and drawing them using chalk outside. We managed to figure out that on average it would take 8 feet to roughly fit ONE T-Rex footprint!
