This is a curriculum skills-based Science resource that enables students to practise their skills of identifying biological characteristics, understanding differences between types of dinosaur, and hypothesising as to the reasons for differing physical features and characteristics.
This resource could be used as a pre-visit research task, but is designed to work in conjunction with the dinosaur features on display in the museum.
Completion of the resource/s linked to this document
This resource could be used as a follow-up task to compound 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
Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to observe and identify features of difference with regard to the physical/biological characteristics within a species.
