Dinosaurs 

You've probably heard of T. rex and Triceratops, but what exactly is a dinosaur? What do palaeontologists know about the different types of dinosaurs and why do they think they might still be around today? Find out all about dinosaurs in our presentation for primary school students and teachers.

Fossils 

What are fossils? How do they form? Find out why scientists study fossils and what they can tell us about the ancient creatures that once lived on Earth in our presentation for primary school students and teachers.

""""
""

The Rock Cycle

What are rocks made of? How are they formed? What properties do they have? What can rocks tell us about past environments on Earth? Find out all about the rock cycle in our presentation for primary school students and teachers.

Volcanoes


What is a volcano and how do they form? Why are there different types of volcanic eruption and how can these be dangerous? 

""

Energy

What is an energy resource? What's the difference between non-renewable and renewable energy resources and why does it matter?

""

Volcanoes 

Why do some volcanoes erupt gently and other explosively? Are all types of lava the same? How do geologists monitor volcanoes and what hazards are associated with eruptions? Where have volcanoes erupted in the recent past? Find out in this set of volcano resources for KS3-5.

Geothermal Gradient & Magma Generation (KS5)


The crust and mantle of the Earth are solid rock so where and why do we get liquid magma? The key lies in the Earth's geothermal gradient.

""

Mineral Resources (KS2-5)

Mineral resources are vital for so constructing so many different things from smartphones and computers to satellites and space shuttles.
