Activity sheets for Children aged 8 - 12 years

Online Activity: Ice Age Ireland - Cool Fossils

Do you ever wonder what kinds of ancient animals lived on your doorstep thousands of years ago? In this Museum at Home activity, we will explore Ice Age Ireland, learn about fossils in the Museum's collection and the different kinds of animals that lived here in the past.

Download and print these activity sheets to learn about the cool Ice Age fossils in Ireland. Use the maps to discover what fossils were excavated in your county and test your skills by completing activities, like puzzels and a word search.

This activity is designed for children aged 8-12 years old and can be used as an at home activity for children and families this December.

When you have completed the activity sheets, why not let us know how you got on by emailing educationnh@museum.ie or post a photo of your work online through Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #MuseumAtHome.
