About this Experience

Find out what fossils teach us about dinosaurs! Your students will learn how scientists compare the physical features left behind by dinosaurs in fossils to animals we know today. They'll uncover fossils from the past and assemble a life-size dinosaur skeleton puzzle!


PROGRAM OPTIONS: Dinosaurs is available as either a large group assembly or an in-depth residency.

ASSEMBLY MAX: 150 students

DURATION: 40 minutes (all K-2 assemblies)

Learning Goals
  • Science is the process of making observations, collecting data and making interpretations based on the physical evidence.
  • Different theories may explain the same set of observations.
  • Fossils provide evidence of plants and animals that lived long ago.
  • Models are used to learn about real life objects and events.
