Interpreting the evidence from dinosaur footprints

This is a very popular Earthlearningidea - 'The meeting of the dinosaurs - 100 million years ago: the evidence given by dinosaur footprints'. Tracks or traces of creatures are fossils just as are their shells and bones. Dinosaur footprints give clues to the lives of the animals of the past. They may give more clues to their lifestyles than the fossil bones themselves. They also give clues about the ancient environments in which they lived.
This is a very good end-of-school-year activity. Please let us know what your pupils think happened.

It is really wonderful how the Earth managed to leave us "books" where we can see, read, trace back and marvel at the stories of yesterday! Interesting.
