Class 3/4 visit to The Natural History Museum in Tring

As part of our science unit this term on teeth, Class 3/4 went to the Natural History Museum in Tring.  First we looked around the museum at the many animal displays and completed a worksheet about animal teeth.  We then took part in a workshop and each group was given a different animal skull to examine.  We had to decide if the animal was a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore by looking at its teeth.  This was quite tricky!  We were also able to hold and look closely at a tooth from an elephant and a hippopotamus.
