KS2 – Dinosaurs, Fossils … and Maths!

(Recommended for Years 4 – 6)

Topic: History, Science and Maths

Duration: 60 mins

In the first part of this session, pupils explore fossils from The Amelia’s collection, looking at how they provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago. We then focus on the fossil of a dinosaur from our local area: iguanodon. The class use their maths skills to work out how big the bone would have been when whole and then how big the dinosaur it belonged to would have been when it roamed our local area around 125 million years ago!
