Combine a Virtual lesson with a Fossil Warden with 2 week hire of our Fossil Loan box, for the ultimate classroom package!

Live Warden lesson: Inspire your class for a whole hour with a palaeontologist! Via Zoom, or other platform, the Warden will engage the children, showing them plenty of fossils, both big and small. No session would be complete without a chance for the class to ask the Fossil Warden questions too. The session will be tailored to your group, so please get in touch if you have a particular topic in mind. Topics can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Fossil formation
  • Jurassic fossil fact files – learning how they lived and fossilised by looking at real fossils
  • Dinosaur adaptations, with the skull of the Charmouth Dinosaur, Scelidosaur
  • Jurassic murder mystery – how did the Sea Dragon die?
  • Mary Anning
  • Fossil folklore
  • The different rocks of the Jurassic Coast
  • History of the Jurassic Coast

In addition, 2 week hire of the Fossil Loan Box. This is full of local fossils for the class to handle and study. Also included is a folder packed full of teacher resources, including lesson plans on: fossils, the history of fossil collecting, local geology, the Jurassic Coast and conserving the coastline. The box also contains fossil moulds so the students can make their own fossils, and a roll-out Jurassic Sea mural to help the children dive into the ancient environment.
