Our Changing Earth

Today the children learnt all about what the earth looked like when the dinosaurs roamed the land.

The important things we wanted them to learn were:

1/ Originally there was one giant supercontinent called Pangea

2/ Pangea broke up into Gondwanaland and Laurasia during the Jurassic Period

3/ Gondwanaland and Laurasia broke up into the continents we have today during the Cretaceous period

4/ The weather was very different during each of the dinosuar time periods

Have a look at the table below and see what else you can tell me about the different time periods!
