What Will You Learn?

Suitable for children aged six and over, the Dinosaurs for Kids Course will teach you about the different types of dinosaur, their diets and habitats, babies and behaviours. You’ll meet well-known dinosaurs and find out how dinosaurs are grouped so we can understand them better.

You will learn what life was like for the dinosaurs, how the world was at that time and the different periods of dinosaur history. Follow the journey of the dinosaurs’ evolution from the strange reptiles of the early Triassic period to the fearsome meat-eaters of the late Cretaceous... and see if you can guess what happened to the biggest, baddest animals that ever lived.

In the Dinosaurs for Kids Course, you will learn about the people who study dinosaurs, who are called palaeontologists, and discover how they find out all about dinosaurs.

You will learn all kinds of things that may surprise you. Did dinosaurs have feathers? Were they good parents? And, were some dinosaurs even dinosaurs at all?

If you’re interested in finding out more about reptiles that roar, the Dinosaurs for Kids Course is packed with facts about these mysterious and marvellous monsters. At the end of each module, our Quick Quizzes will make sure you know your T. rex from your Triceratops and your Cretaceous Period from your Carnosaur. Are you ready?

By studying this course, you will:

  • Learn about different types of dinosaurs and how they lived
  • Understand dinosaur evolution, their environments, and their history
  • Find out how palaeontologists study dinosaurs
  • Understand the main theories as to how the dinosaurs died out

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
