Mary Anning Session
This session was put together for an 8-11 year old group, but is easily adapted to a younger audience.
The material covers how scientists look at problems, disproving a theory, sharing stories & story telling, thinking about how we ‘know’ things and making a 3D dinosaur.
It was used in conjunction with other parents’ contributions, so this was not the whole session.
The shared story activity worked really well, but the bigger the group the more you need to calm them down before hand as it can very easily get really silly – which may or mayn’t be a good thing. I had to work particularly hard to draw some of the shyer one out, but when they did start contributing, they got really into it too.
