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!

  2. Hello everyone. We think it is amazing to think of where we have all come from. Do you wish you could have a sneak peek into what life must have been like back then? What will life be in 1,000 years time? Finding out about the time of the dinosaur is so interesting. We hope you have lots of fun learning more.
