What would it be like to have a dinosaur as a pet? – Virtual Excursion to Bathurst Museum (Stage 2, Stage 3)
Take a look inside the Australian Fossil and Mineral Museum, located in Bathurst NSW.
With a T.rex looming overhead join Museum curators Penny and Alison for this syllabus linked session that will explore the living world and encourage students to look at how the science of palaeontology can be applied to a real life dilemma: If you had a pet dinosaur, what would you need to know and how would you look after it?
In this session students will:
• Find out how fossils are formed and learn about how palaeontologists know dinosaurs ever existed
• See clues that help us understand what dinosaurs needed to survive in their environment
• Compare dinosaurs to animals that are alive now
• Come up with a strategy to keep YOUR dinosaur as a pet
• Discover how big the T. rex dinosaur brain was and how smart a big dinosaur like that was
