Identifying when living things existed in relation to the dinosaurs, and identifying types of dinosaur whilst learning when and how they were found.

Contextual Summary

This research task enables students to practise their understanding of chronology, looking at dinosaurs found on the island, as well as living creatures that either link to the period of the dinosaurs, or highlight the differences between the historical periods.

Key Skills Practised
  • Understanding of chronology
  • Interpreting information
  • Synthesising information
  • Recording information
Learning Opportunities


The research-based resource/questions could be used/answered in class prior to the trip so students are aware of the chronology of the periods in which the dinosaurs lived, other creatures that lived before and after the dinosaurs, as well as gaining an understanding of when they were discovered locally.


The research-based resource/questions could be used/answered as a follow-up task to allow for more skills- based curriculum work after the visit to be undertaken.

Learning Outcomes

Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of chronology by specifically demonstrating their abilities in practice, by finding, interpreting, synthesising and presenting the required information.
