The task links to specific exhibit content within Dinosaur Isle museum that is relevant in topic to students in key stages 1-3 for example: habitat, features of once-living animals, and fossils.
This is a curriculum skills-based Science resource that enables students to practise their skills of investigating, information-gathering and summarising
The geological periods, fossils, dinosaurs, and using museum exhibits for learning could all be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are aware of the subject matter and the areas of learning relevant to them.
Completion of the Scientific Enquiry resource/s linked to this document: Investigate the Dinosaurs!
Follow-up tasks could include: whole class discussion about the responses to the questions; groups presenting back their collated ideas to the class; projects on an area of particular interest
Students will be able to demonstrate their investigative skill, information-retrieval, interpretation and collation skills, by answering appropriate questions and finding the required information. Students will also be able to demonstrate that they have understood their learning, by recording and summarising the information gleaned.
