The ‘on-site’ tasks focus on the identification of fossil teeth and the drawing of simple food chains based on the display materials found at Dinosaur Expeditions activity barn.
This is an on-site resource that is designed to be completed during the visit to the activity barn. There is particular reference to the fossil teeth that students will find and the materials in the display area.
Students will use a simple identification key with pictures to identify the fossil teeth that they will discover. The worksheet will then help them to relate the structure of the tooth to its function.
Students will make observations in the display area to help them to draw a simple ‘dinosaur food chain’.
Key Skills Practised
Making systematic and careful observations
Recording findings as drawings
Identifying and classifying
It is suggested to teachers that students be introduced to the idea the animals obtain their food from plants and other animals before their visit
Students will be able to show how the structure of a tooth is related to its function. They will draw simple food chains. They will identify carnivores and herbivores.
