This is a curriculum skills-based Science resource that enables students to practise their skills of identifying animal parts, understanding the needs of the dinosaur, and suggesting likely reasons for dinosaursâ€™ physical features and characteristics.
The task links to all species featured at Dinosaur Isle museum, thus ensuring relevance on the visit for students in key stages 1-2.
Students complete work on why body parts are important in providing movement, shape, support, or protection (either in dinosaurs or in other species)
Completion of the resource/s linked to this document
This resource could be used as a follow-up task to compund learning or evidence their level of understanding after the visit. Other follow-up tasks could include: whole class discussion about the responses to the questions; groups presenting back their collated responses to the class; Projects on a dinosaur type of particular interest, or uses of body parts in another type of animal
Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to observe and identify animal parts for support, protection and movement in dinosaurs, relating to the physical/biological characteristics within a species.
