Feedback form is now closed.
Join members of the team who developed the film ‘Sea Dragon’ and other resources for children and teachers based on the work of the fossil hunter Mary Anning. We discuss how, in addition to understanding of fossils and evolution, the resources contribute to childrens’ use of argumentation and dialogue in developing reasoning and thinking skills, questioning and evaluation of evidence used in answering questions and understanding of the nature of scientific and historical knowledge.

This workshop includes opportunities to try out some of our cross curricular activities and teaching strategies for English, history and RE lessons as well as science lessons. Teachers attending our workshop may wish to join our pilot in 2021.

This project is supported by Big Questions in Classrooms, an initiative from the Templeton World Charity Foundation.
