Dinosaurs - Stages 4-6
Students use stimulus questions to explore the world of dinosaurs through skeletons, life-size models, skulls, teeth, claws and hundreds of other fossils.
Students investigate when and where dinosaurs lived, Australian dinosaurs, predator and prey, living dinosaurs and extinction. They experience the drama of a dinosaur stampede that occurred 95 million years ago in Queensland in a life-size animation. There are many hands-on and interactive exhibits and students observe the palaeontology lab to see how real dinosaur fossils are excavated. Students use written stimulus questions to investigate the Dinosaurs exhibition.
