Take trip 2 billion years back in time with palaeontologist Dr Helen. Meet some amazing and extraordinary fossil creatures – some of whom were your ancestors – and discover the story of evolution.

Virtual Visit Details

We take an imaginary trip to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and examine some of the fossils that are preserved in each rock layer that we pass - to tell the evolutionary story of life on Earth through its fossils. We will:

- Examine a variety of fossil types (bones, shells, teeth, insects, dinosaurs etc.)
- Notice changes through time in the types of organisms that were alive.
- See the evidence for evolution, including some “half and half” animals (eg. the “dino-bird”, “leggy fish”, and “furry reptile”).

Ideal for UKS2 Evolution topic, also suitable for KS3.
