Skyping a Dinosaur Expert

This morning 2KM and 2KJ were very lucky to skype with Jenni from the National Dinosaur Museum (NDM) in Canberra!

We thought of some very interesting dinosaur questions and Jenni answered them for us on Skype. We learnt so much and we are so grateful that Jenni gave up time in her busy schedule to help us all learn more about dinosaurs!

What did you learn from Jenni?

What else would you like to ask a dinosaur expert?

What other sort of expert would you like to skype with?

  1. Dear 2KM and 2JK,

    How lucky are you all were to be able to skype with Jeni the dinosaur expert. 🙂

    I really loved reading the wonderful questions you asked her.

    Now, if I had the chance to ask Jeni a question I would love to ask her if she could be a dinosaur what dinosaur would she like to be.

    Great work everyone.
    From your blogging pal,

    • Dear AA,

      Thank you for your comment on the 2KM and 2KJ blog.

      That is a really great question you wanted to ask Jenni. I was so excited that we skyped with Jenni so I made a post on my own blog.

      Lots Of Love,

      P.S To get to my blog you click the photo of me above my comment.

      • @ Hi,

        Thankyou for my both replies from Hallie and Flynn.

        Flynn I really liked your question which you asked me.
        So to answer your question if I could pick out to be a dinosaur I would like to be a Brachisaurus.
        From AA.

        • @AA

          Thank you for learing a comment for me and hallie.

          You chose a great dinosaur!

          What is our favorite dinosaur?

          My favorite dinosaurs are the plant-eaters.

          Love from,

  2. Dear 2KM and 2JK,

    How awesome that you got to skype with Jeni.
    I remember skyping with Jeni last year and it was so much fun and I learned a lot from her too.

    When I asked Jeni a dinosaur question I think I asked Jeni if dinosaurs lived in caves.

    The one expert I would love to skpe with is with Mrs Yollis.

    Happy blogging everyone.
    From BB.

  3. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    What a fantastic opportunity you had! I was reading through your questions and Jenni’s answers and they were very fascinating. You all asked great questions!

    If I were to Skype an expert, I think I’d like to Skype an astronaut, or someone who works in the aeronautical field. I’m a big fan of space and I think it would be brilliant to get to talk to someone who works in that field.

    Keep up the great work!

    • Dear Steff,

      Hi my name is Keira and I’m in 2KJ.

      Thank you for leaving a great comment! :mrgreen:

      My quistion to Jenni was, What was your favourite thing about your job. Jenni’s awnser was I luky that I have dug up bone’s two times and found them.

      I would love to skype with a artest, a poilce, a parametic at the hospital and a fire porson.

      Have you ever been on skype:?:

      If you have who did you skype with:?:

      Have you ever been to space?

      Have you seen a spac ship or a rocert ship?

      Hope to hear from you soon. 😆

      Best wishes love from your blogging mate,
      Keira from 2KJ. 😆

      • Dear Keira,

        My apologies for such a late reply!

        I love your reply. You’re question to Jenni was fantastic, and it sounds like you got a very special answer.

        I have been on Skype before. I use it to talk to my younger cousins who live in country Victoria, and I don’t get to see them very often.

        I haven’t been to space… but I would LOVE to go. I have seen pieces of spaceships and rockets when I visited Washington D.C. (in America) a few years ago. I went to a brilliant museum called the National Air and Space Museum and they have lots of artefacts from space missions and the history of flight. I think it’s my favourite museum in the world!

        Keep up the great questions!

        All the best,

  4. Hello 2KM and 2KJ.

    Skype can certainly make you feel as though you are there with the person you’re interviewing. Your questions were wonderful and would have shown Jenni how interested you are.

    I’ve visited the National Dinosaur Museum in Canberra. It’s a fascinating place featuring dinosaurs known to have been in Australia. I wandered around looking at the displays. From where I live, it’s a three hour drive to the museum so I am much closer than you.

    If any of you visit Canberra and the museum, next door is another wonderful tourist place. It’s called Cockington Green. It’s a beautiful garden made up as a model English village.

    Keep blogging 2KM and 2KJ.

    • Dear Ross Mannell,

      Thank you for leaving a wonderful comment on the blog.

      You are leaving so many comments on the blog and supporting us so much!

      Well to intergust myself my name is Kayla my teacher is Miss Jordan and I’m 8 years old.

      I love skyping it is a great way to commutate with other people near and far. I like skyping with my friends and they are Georgia, Ava, Millie, Jordi, Tammy, Lozza, Andrea and lots more.

      You are so lucky to go to the National Dinosaur Museum I have never been there.
      Is it fun there ❓

      I think it would be fun!

      You are so lucky because it is only 3 hours for you and for us it is 10-11 hours.

      I can say from in your comment it sounds like the place next door to the National Dinosaur Museum is very interesting.

      Thank you for your GREAT comment again.

      Love From,

      • Hello Kayla,

        Tank you for replying to my comment.

        Having been a dinosaur fan since I was your age, I found the National Dinosaur Museum to be very interesting. I have some fossils in my collection but the only thing I have from a dinosaur is a coprolite (fossilised dinosaur droppings).

        Here is a link to a photo of it if you are allowed to see it…

        It seems it’s easy to find these than dinosaur bones.

        Cockington Green is a wonderful place. I have a link to one of my photos taken there…

        I hope your class continues its blog posts. I have come to enjoy reading what is happening in your school. 🙂

  6. Hello 2KM &2KJ,
    it must have been a whole lot of fun Skyping with a Dinosaur expert, I’d imagine there were some great question and interesting Awnsews, Skype is a useful tool to conect with people around the world.

    • Dear Gemma,

      Thank you for your comment!

      Have you ever been on skype?

  7. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Nanna and I think this post is very interesting!
    Eb: I wish we could skype with another palaeontologist and I would ask that person how many people help her or him to get the dinosaur bone out of the ground.

    Nanna: I wonder how far they have to travel to find dinosaur bones.
    We both would like to be a palaeontologist! But we don’t know what to do.
    See you soon.

    Hope to hear from you,
    Eb Julie (eb’s nanna) :mrgeen:

    • @ Julie and Eb,

      Thank you for your wonderful comment, it’s great.

      Eb I think your question was great, and I also think skyping with another palaeontologist would be very fun too. ::mrgreen:

      I also wonder where they have to travel to dig for the dinosaur bones.

      I think it would be fun to be a palaeontologist, but it would be a lot of work. I also don’t know what to do when you become a palaeontologist.

      I love your comment again.

      Best Wishes,
      Alana 😆

  8. @ Julie and Eb,

    Thank you for your wonderful comment, it’s great.

    Eb I think your question was great, and I also think skyping with another palaeontologist would is good. ::mrgreen:

    I also think how long to they have to travel to dig for the dinosaur bones.

    I think it would be fun to be a palaeontologist, but it would be a lot of work. I also don’t know what to do when you become a palaeontologist.

    I love your comment again.

    Best Wishes,
    Alana 😆

  9. @ 2KM and 2KJ,

    Awesome post, Mrs Morris. I felt like I was there.

    It would of been lots of fun to skype with Jenni the dinosaur expert but I didn’t get to because I was away. 🙁

    I would like to skype with a horse expert that knows everything about horses. I am really interested in horses and I would like to find out more about the different breeds.

    What was your favourite thing about skyping with Jenni? Did you learn something really interesting?

    Best wishes,
    Ava 😛

    • @ Ava,

      Thank you for your lovely comment.

      What did you do at your house when you were away? Were you sick?

      Maybe we might Skype with another Dinosaur expert.

      I don’t know who else I want to Skype with.

      My favourite thing about Skyping with Jenni is that she gave 2KM and 2KJ a lot of information.

      Best Wishes,

      • @ Alana,

        Thanks for replying to me.

        I didn’t do much because I was sick and when your sick you don’t really want to do anything.

        I really hope that we skype with another dinosaur expert. That would be great.

        Learning lots of information from other people is great. :mrgreen:

        Talk to you soon,
        Ava 😛

        • @ Ava,

          Thank you for the fantastic relpy, it’s great.

          Did you go on the blog or watch T.V. when you were at your house?

          Do you like missing out on school? I don’t because then I miss out on learning.

          Best Wishes,

  10. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Best wishes,
    Georgia. 😛

  11. Hi 2KM and 2KJ,

    Wow, what a fantastic opportunity you all had. Skyping with Jenni sounds like it was great fun. I thought the questions you asked were fantastic, isn’t it great when you get to ask an expert something you’ve always wanted to know. I learnt lots from reading your questions and Jenni’s answers.
    My class got to skype with my brother earlier this year, even though he’s related to me, he was the expert for the project we were doing about adapting to live in different places. He is travelling around the world on his bike and at that time was cycling through the desert in Mongolia.
    Thanks for sharing your Q+A session with Jenni. Curiosity is a great thing.
