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
When on site, students will be able to use the investigation sheet questions as focused prompts to engage with the museum resources at Dinosaur Isle, thus gaining a more enhanced and enriched visit experience, and ensuring it is one that links with the expected curricular relevance and knowledge. The design of the challenge questions ensures engagement with all relevant areas of the museum.
Key Skills Practised
