Adventures with Dippy - Overview of the Dippy on Tour resources for 7-11s

Aimed at children aged 7-11, our lesson outlines and learning resources will take children on a natural history adventure with Dippy, whether or not they visit him during his tour. There are eight episodes, all relating to the stops on Dippy’s journey. Each considers a different theme with clear links to the national curriculum for 7- to 11-year-olds across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The resources can be used individually and in any order. Each challenge begins with a postcard from an expert scientist, curator or researcher. At the end of each episode pupils can email their findings to Dippy’s team, and will receive a reply. From early 2018 to late 2020 the Natural History Museum’s iconic Diplodocus cast, Dippy, is on a Natural History Adventure across the UK. Dippy on Tour: A Natural History Adventure is an exploration of the UK’s natural history past, present and future. Dippy is a catalyst for exploring different aspects of the natural world along the eight-stop tour to museums and cultural hubs. The Natural History Museum exists to inspire a love of the natural world and unlock answers to the big issues facing humanity and the planet. More than five million people visit the sites in South Kensington and Tring every year, and the website receives over 500,000 unique visitors a month. It is a world-leading science research centre, and through its unique collection and unrivalled expertise it is tackling issues such as food security, eradicating diseases and managing resource scarcity.
