The children were fascinated to see the vast variety of animals at the museum. We had a great handling session of different skulls. We looked closely at the teeth to give us clues as to which mammal each belonged to. We had some great guesses.

We also used our red pen to edit and improve our work as we wrote our entries. Here are some of our fantastic examples,
