Prehistoric (Mesozoic) Volcanoes & Geology
Primary school resources to support the teaching of the Prehistoric (Mesozoic) Era, Volcanoes and Geology.
The Mesozoic Era consisted of three periods in time – Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous. It was a period of history that stretched from 248 to 65 million years ago. During these times the landscape of the earth continuously changed and reptiles known as Dinosaurs roamed.
Dinosaurs became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Period, around 65 million years ago. These fabulous creatures however are not lost in time. The discovery of their fossilised remains can tell us so much information about an incredibly important part of history and help piece together the start of our very own existence.
This amazing artefact collection not only contains replica dinosaur skeletons and models, but also genuine fossils, rocks and fragments that are millions of years old! There is also a fabulous erupting volcano model and a cross-section model of the Earth showing temperatures and depths.
The pictures show a selection of the items in the collection, but please see the contents list for everything you will receive in the box.
