These lesson outlines and learning resources will take children aged 7-11 on a natural history adventure with Dippy. You don't need to visit Dippy to use them.
The resources are designed to complement Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure, but can be done anywhere in the country and don't rely on an accompanying trip to Dippy.
There are eight episodes, which relate to the stops on Dippy's journey. Each considers a different theme with clear links to the national curriculum for 7- to 11-year-olds across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
The resources can be used individually and in any order.
Each challenge begins with a postcard from an expert scientist, curator or researcher. At the end of each episode pupils can email their findings to Dippy's team, and will receive a reply.
Use imagination and creative skills to recreate lost worlds (Science, Maths).
Children discover the living things that existed in a Jurassic forest and create a Jurassic forest in their classroom.
