Jane Goodall is a world-famous primatologist who has made lots of important scientific discoveries about chimpanzees and how they behave. Can you do some research and find the answers to these questions about her life?
Mary Anning was born in 1799. She is famous because of her fossil discoveries and the important contribution they made to the scientific study of prehistoric life. See if you can find the answers to these questions by researching her life on the internet or in your library.
Did you know that dinosaurs lived on Earth for roughly 200 million years, whereas we humans have only existed for 200,000 years?! Look at this timeline. Can you do some research on the kinds of dinosaurs that were around during the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods? Find out what our planet was like then and what other animals were around.
