Inspire your class for a whole hour with a palaeontologist! The Warden will engage the children, taking them behind the scenes to see plenty of fossils on display, both big and small. No session would be complete without a chance for the class to ask the Fossil Warden questions too.

  • 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 – looking at clues on the fossil to discover how the Sea Dragon died?
  • Mary Anning
  • Fossil folklore
  • The different rocks of the Jurassic Coast
  • History of the Jurassic Coast
