Big Dig

The dig begins

Today we did our big dig.  We all had different jobs.  Some of us were palaeontologists, some were scientists, and the rest of us were news reporters, artists and note takers.  The diggers got to work scraping away the dirt, and when they unearthed the bones they took them to the scientists to clean them and lay them out to show us how the skeleton would look.

Carnivore or herbivore?


We found a whole load of bones and when we cleaned them all and separated them from the stones and dirt, we laid them out on the stage to see what we had found.  We talked about whether we thought it was a carnivore or herbivore and checked the teeth in the skull to help us decide.
