Dinosaur remains have been found in the opal fields of South Australia and New South Wales.
Kakuru is represented by a single almost-complete tibia (lower leg bone) from Andamooka in South Australia. The word “Kakuru” means “rainbow serpent” in the local Aboriginal language, probably because the opalised fossil sparkles with many colours. Other South Australian fossil material includes a juvenile hypsilophodontid vertebra from Andemooka, and an ankle bone of a large ornithopod, perhaps something like Muttaburrasaurus, from Coober Pedy.

Talk about or Write about

1. When people learn that dinosaurs lived in Australia many don’t realise that our land looked nothing like it does now. The Australian continent had not long broken away from Antarctica and would have had a different size and shape than what it has today. Also, there was a large inland sea occupying about a third of Australia’s land area. So what does it actually mean to say that dinosaur remains have been found in South Australia?

2. What do opals and rainbows have in common?

3. Looking at the image above, how tall and how long would you say Kakuru was?

4. What would you estimate the height and length of Muttaburrasaurus to be?

5. Of the four dinosaurs in the picture, three are bipeds and the other is quadrupedal. What does this mean?

6. What modern-day creature does Kakuru most remind you of?

7. If you were lucky enough to find an opalised dinosaur fossil would you value it more for its beauty or its rarity? What would you do with it?

So that we can make this site as classroom-friendly as possible we would be pleased to hear from teachers who have tried any of our ideas, suggestions or lessons with their classes.
Just a very short note mentioning year level, idea/suggestion used, whether it was a written exercise, class discussion or debate, and any other useful feedback would be appreciated.

    this is an absolutely wonderful piece of work!

    • Thank you very much Asha.

      It’s been a while since we’ve put something new on the site but your kind comment has inspired us!

      There’ll be more ideas, suggestions and lessons soon.

      Best wishes,

      Ron and Jacqueline (Editors)

  2. Nousha says:

    Thank you very much for this wonderful website. My daughter even though quite smart was struggling in her double and triple digit subtractions and the teacher just told her about it. I guess it is because of lack of practice at home as all other kids nowadays. My problem was not knowing exactly the things they took at school. So with this I really thank you for giving us something to help with. Will keep you posted on the progress.

  3. Sally says:

    Great resources. Thanks heaps for so many worksheets in the same place.

  4. Mbee says:

    Dear Ron and Jacqueline,

    You guys have done a great job in preparing the work sheets for our children.
    I have been looking for this kind of information for a long time ever since my boys were in the elementary school. Sadly they are now in High school and Uni.

    However my daughter will be very happy to study and enjoy these lessons. Never too late. 🙂

    My deepest appreciation to your kind and great work.


    • Dear Le,

      Thanks so much for your kind words.

      We would be delighted if your daughter is able to benefit from some of our materials.

      Time permitting we hope to add more to the site during January/February.

      Best wishes,

      Ron and Jacqueline

  12. Hi Anthony,

    Glad you find our materials useful.

    We have so many ideas, suggestions and lessons (including Geography) waiting to go on the website but as we’re just a husband and wife team with other demands on our time we haven’t been able to add to the resource bank for quite awhile.

    As we say to other visitors to Australian Teacher, as soon as we can we’ll upload more.

    (thanks for the positive feedback)

    Best wishes,

    Ron and Jacqueline

I can see him gaining in confidence every day. I cannot thank you enough.
