Class 2 Fossil Hunters 17.9.21

How do we know about dinosaurs?

We have been thinking about how we know about dinosaurs, even though there were no humans on Earth at the same time.  We found out that scientists have discovered lots of information by looking at dinosaur fossils.  We have been looking at some fossils of small creatures and we looked at some pictures of dinosaur fossils.  We learnt that people who search for fossils are called paleontologists. We were interested to find out about a lady called Mary Anning who lived over 200 years ago and was a famous paleontologist. She found many fossils in rocks in the south coast of England. 


We've enjoyed looking at some of the fossils that have been brought in to share in class.
                                                           
                     

We made some 'fossils' by pressing dinosaur models into some saltdough.
                 

There has been some super research this week. In small groups we used books and computers to find out about one dinosaur, we then shared our findings and created fact files. We have found more facts to help us place dinosaurs on a timeline and we are quickly building up our knowledge about different dinosaurs. We learnt about the 3 periods of the mesozoic era and what the landscape was like in each. 

                                                     

Along with all this research, we've also been busy with maths, reading and writing tasks.  Brilliant work everyone!
