Dinosaurs Were Real!
Getting Started

The lessons in this issue capitalize on students’ interests in dinosaurs, as real animals, subject to the same laws of nature as other animals. They introduce basic concepts that help students to understand the history of all life.

Included here is information on the world of the dinosaurs during the Mesozoic era, such as the changes that were taking place on Earth at that time, and a photo collage introducing the Smithsonian Institution.

Note: This is an archival publication dating back to 1976 and any supplements or suggestions for off-site education may not be available.
