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 dinosaurs’ 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.
It is suggested to teachers that they introduce the topic before the visit, so the subject matter is familiar and they have an understanding of physical characteristics in humans and animals and why they are important to the needs of the individual within their habitat. Students could look at the purposes of and uses for body parts in various species (including dinosaurs, if desired) and identified reasons for these.
Key Skills Practised
Observation and identification of body parts
Suggesting reasons for body parts and their uses (specifically for dinosaurs)
Students complete work on why body parts are important in providing movement, shape, support, or protection (either in dinosaurs or in other species)

Why not complete this resource on a day trip?
The Isle of Wight can be reached in as little as 12 minutes! If you're located close to the south coast then a day trip is easily achievable...
This resource could be completed as part of the following day trip:
Dino Delights! from £8.79pp
The Isle of Wight is Europe's Dinosaur & Fossil capital! Dino Delights is an inspiring day trip to a fascinating dinosaur museum.
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.
