Terrifying Killers and their Prey

We start our exploration into the Crazy Dinosaur workshop by examining some really BIG fossils. We have the biggest fossils around that really blow the kids away such as:

Sabre-Tooth Tiger

REAL life sized skull of the Sabre Tooth Tiger (Smilodon fatalis) fossil. Place your head next to it and even your arm inside its jaws and learn about how this magnificent creature caught its prey and used its adaptations (teeth, skull structure and body musculature) to take down large prey.

Life -sized Woolly Mammoth Femur

You will learn about the Woolly Mammoth and similar sized extinct animals and stand next to our GIGANTIC fossil femur. This will really educate young minds on how BIG these creatures were!

Woolly Rhino Horn

Our unique 1m Ice Age Woolly Rhino Horn is amazing. This gigantic horn shows just how BIG this Rhino was and that it used it to defend from BIG predators.

The Great Dino-Skull Table

We provide a dedicated table for the exploration of SIX skulls all with hand lenses. Each dino skull comes with a detailed coloured HD info plate containing information the kids can understand. We also encourage older students to use the rulers to measure skull features and use the scale provided to calculate how BUG they were.

Info Plates that enhance learning

Kids need concrete visual and meaningful information with new information. Our plates contain the following features which enable all children to maximise their learning:

  •  coloured pictures of the dinosaur,
  • visual scale comparisons
  • essential information at a language appropriate level.
  • some have measuring activities to challenge inquiring minds

Hands-on Dino Cast Table

This table explores various plaster cast fossils that illustrate whole body fossils each with HD coloured plates. There are 16 fossils at this table with hand lenses to explore which is enough for the biggest group of budding paleontologist.

Mini-Dino Head Challenge Table

At this table, the children do more than just look or read. They explore the connections between skull structure, adaptations, food type and more through digging and classifying the fossil skulls into categories. They learn and investigate all while being active and exploring scientific concepts and with no mess, as we use Kinetic-Sand. (kids love that experience in itself!)  

kinetic sand dino skullsWMDino heads1

We have recently added another Kinetic-Sand exploration table called “Prehistoric Skulls. This activity is the same as the Mini-dino Head Challenge table BUT they unearth many types of  extinct beast skulls such as Giant Killer Pig, Woolly Rhino, and many more.

This is the way  The Crazy Scientist® does things.

Prehistoric Skulls

For the really small dino-hunters (pre-schoolers) we had added several different Dino types that they make 3D moulds using kinetic sand AND coloured play-dough. Highly kinaesthetic (hands-on learning) and FUN! They explore types of dinosaurs, herding behaviour and stability of walking.

Tooth / Claw match-up table

This table is like no other! In the usual Crazy Scientist style, hands-on learning meets highly engaging materials and FUN. This table has a massive amount of teeth and claws to examine and classify.

The children examine the fossilised teeth and claws and find their Dino Partner Card (again with HD coloured info). They learn about structure and function of claws and teeth, types of eaters (herbivores, carnivores, piscivores and MORE).

Not only do we have fantastic Dino Teeth and claws, but also other GREAT BEASTS such as:

  •  Sabre Tooth Tiger canine tooth
  • Megalodon Tooth (Biggest available)……. compare it to a real Great White Shark tooth!
  • Super-Croc Tooth
  • Ground Sloth Claw
  • Spinosaurus Tooth
  • Megaraptor Claw

and many, many MORE!

Fossil Types Table

There are many types of fossils, even though most children think of fossil skeletons. It is at this table they explore the various types of fossils such as:

  •  Skin (we have two types of skin fossils)
  •  Hair (Real fossilised hair)

dino poo

  • Bone (Real fossilised Mammoth bone)
  •  Impressions (we have skin, footprints and plates)
  •  Dino Poo!
  •  Eggs
  • Glyptodon Scute plates

and MORE!

The Lot Shark Teeth on the white backround












Like all of the workshops run by The Crazy Scientist® , children get to take a FREE gift home that keeps them learning and being amazed by the wacky world of science.

Every child (6yr or older) get TWO REAL shark fossilised teeth to take home in a fantastic plastic test tube. We don’t give the children a pretend fossil that may rot away. (play-dough or similar), but a fossil that has lasted 5 million years and will last for many more years to come.

Depending on the location (you may find making Dino Snot is too messy for your caret), then we combine FUN learning with a dinosaur twist. We make Rock Strata Test Tubes in which we place your REAL shark tooth fossil. A great way to explore the fossilisation process while having FUN at the same time.
