Jurassic fossil handling workshop
Market Hall Museum, Warwick
A fantastic opportunity to handle real Jurassic fossils from Warwickshire’s Jurassic seabed and see the fossils on display at Market Hall Museum, look out for the Warwickshire dinosaur.
The workshop introduction will explain how fossils are formed and about the rock cycle. Half the workshop will be spent handling the Jurassic fossils, learning their names and what sort of living creatures they used to be.
For the rest of the workshop pupils will take part in short activities designed to explore the theme of evolution through habitat and learn more about the Warwickshire dinosaur, cruxicheiros newmanorum.
