Our fossil trips are a combination of a fun and education talk (approx. 20 min) about fossils, dinosaurs and evolution using real fossils and props (many of which can be held), a chance to buy some real fossils and gemstones should the group wish to and a fossil hunting trip on one of the local beaches (approx. 1.5-2 hrs) where we help the group to find their own fossils and point out a range of geological features and explain about how the Island was formed and has changed over millions of years. If the group are booked on to a low tide fossil trip, we also show them the dinosaur footprints. Anything found on the fossil hunting trip can be kept with the teachers permission. We guarantee every pupil will find something (it may not always be a dinosaur bone or an ammonite but they will find something). This trip covers topics from the science and geography curriculum in Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4.
