Museum trip

Yesterday on Thursday room 13  we went to the museum! We went to the museum because we are learning about dinosaurs and paleontologists . We had lots of fun.

Palaeontologists are scientists that study dinosaur bones or fossils.  A Fossil is something that is very, very, old and is covered in sand and dirt then after lots of years it turns into a rock. Fossils can also be made out of shells and rock or in a block of wood.

We learned something about a T-Rex and a triceratops. We got splitted in 3 groups. I was in group 3. We had to hold an object and guess what it was. Our first object was a T-Rex's tooth. Did you know that if a T-Rex loses a tooth it can regrow and also a T-Rex has 70 teeth.

Our 2nd object was a poop. Group 3 thought it was a brain, we said it's a brain straight away but it wasn't. Palaeontologists were actually happy that they found a triceratops poo because they can looked through the poo and see what they ate for lunch.

But it was the end of the day and we had to go back to school by the bus then go home.
