Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used in a lesson on how evidence can be used to create an image or impression of something we have never seen. Pupils could be asked to think about how the makers of the clip came up with the impression of the Gigantoraptor that we now see. They can be asked to write down the different evidence and then use it to create instructions on drawing an impression of the Gigantoraptor.
