School Teacher Resources
Welcome to the Prehistoric Experiences teacher's resources part of our website. After delivering experiences to hundreds of schools and 10'000's of thousands of children we have learnt that there is a strong need for teacher's resources before experiences to help the children have a basic knowledge of the subject matter. AND after an experience to help reinforce and solidify the learning that has taken place after an experience or towards the end of a topic.
We thought we would further support our great customers by preparing some extremely awesome resources which can be used either at the beginning of a topic or after, with hopefully one of our experiences being thrown into the mix also.
If you are not a customer of ours please do not worry, we are more than happy for you to use these resources too!! We only ask that you tell others about us and share what we do in your teaching collectives and on social media profiles if you have them. Which we feel is a fair deal.
