You may remember looking at a huge display of fossils and a picture of a lady named Mary Anning during our visit to the Natural History Museum. Now it’s time to find out more about her!

Watch the following clip:

Mary Anning tells the story of her life and shows us how she found fossils that changed scientific thinking worldwide.

Now try answering the following questions:


Who was Mary Anning?

Why was her work important?

Why did she not get the recognition she deserved?


Present your findings in an interesting way.  This could be as a Powerpoint, a factfile, a poster, a biography, an article for a magazine or something more creative!
