Dinosaur Detectives!

The Foundation Unit enjoyed their visit to Charnwood Museum to look at the dinosaur exhibition.

On a chilly, snowy morning the Foundation Unit visited Charnwood Museum, Loughborough. Apart from exploring the many hands-on exhibits, tracking down various dinosaurs hiding amongst artefacts, lying down head to toe to find out how many girls it took to be the same length as a Pleiosaur’s fossil remains from Barrow-on-Soar, the girls learnt about being a paelentologist.  They looked at puzzle footprints, made deductions, excavated for dinosaur bones then reassembled them, as well as making their own clay fossil.
