Planning questions for the talk given by experts at Dinosaur Isle
In preparation for students’ planned visit to Dinosaur Isle, this activity will see them planning for opportunities to practise their English Spoken Language skills, which are a core part of the English National Curriculum 2014 and, in Scotland, Curriculum for Excellence.
The resource focuses on planning for questioning during the expert talk that is optional for school visits. This resource is designed to link with the talk that is provided by Dinosaur Isle , on subjects as requested by the school.
It is suggested to teachers that they complete this resource before the visit, as a taster/preparation activity. Students should then be keen
to find the answers to the questions during their venue visit, and may have already researched / guessed at some of the answers.
