Dinosaurs And Living Things

Early Stage 1 – Stage 1

How do we know dinosaurs ever existed? What do we know about how dinosaurs lived and what lived alongside them?

Sitting in the shadow of the T. rex, students will see real dinosaur eggs, dinosaur skeletons and fossils as well as learn about the planet we live on, in a program designed for Early Stage 1 to Stage 1 students.
