Today we worked on our evolution unit study from Intellego. This week we found out how difficult and frustrating it is to be a palaeontologist. In the activity the children "discovered" a few bones at a time and they had to make assumptions about the creature they had discovered using the evidence they had found. It was interesting to see how their ideas about what type of creature the bones came from evolved as we worked through the activity; first they thought it was a T-rex or a diplodocus, next maybe a plesiosaor. We finally worked out that it could have been a flying reptile or archaeopteryx.
