On Monday the class visited The National Museum of Scotland, in Chamber Street, Edinburgh. It was a fantastic day out. We took part in the ‘Dinosaurs and Fossils’ workshop where we took on the role of Paleontologists to study and handle many different fossils. We worked in teams to find clues and work out what type of dinosaur they belonged to, where on the body the bone came from and whether the dinosaur had been a meat eater or plant eater. We learned lots of interesting facts.
After lunch the class enjoyed wandering around some of the galleries and having fun learning information from the interactive exhibits. We found many good ideas on how to display artefacts which we will use in our own classroom museum. Watch the film of our day below.
