Jurassic Walk

Can you walk like a dinosaur?

What do you know about dinosaurs and how and when they lived? 

Can you identify dinosaurs by their footprints?

This STEAM activity introduces children to science, maths and some good old fashioned sleuthing. 

Children will use our dinosaur trackway to look at different dinosaur footprints and hypothesise which dinosaurs came first. Were they migrating? Were they hunting? Were they running to escape? This is what your group will have to determine using some scientific methods.

The group will then split into teams and have to puzzle together some life size dinosaur footprint puzzle pieces. They will gain a greater understanding of just how big these creatures truly were. When the puzzle pieces are all assembled, the children will use iPads to watch some short videos starring Beyond the Beanstalk's very own Hardhattians, as they gather information about dinosaurs.

Next the children will create their own dinosaur story and create a trackway to represent this. They will work in pairs and using some dinosaur footprint "shoes", make their way across the trackway. The service will get to keep this trackway and can use it as a follow up activity.
