Our intentions from the start have been quite simple: to provide a comprehensive, educational, and interactive website which will exhibit many aspects of dinosaurs and paleontology. We wanted teachers to have a place where they could access and utilize factual information in organizing and creating new dinosaur materials. We also wanted to build a community of teachers that could welcome and share new ideas with other teachers concerning their dinosaur curriculum. We would hope to encourage collaborative learning and partnerships to form between teachers connected via the Internet, and in doing so, connect teachers around the world.
We hope this section will give you ideas for incorporating our site into your current curriculum. For this reason, we have put together a list of lesson plans and activities for various age groups. However, we also encourage you to add your own lesson plans, activities, and other ideas to our site using the file upload area. Hopefully, it will also spark some dialogue between fellow educators about their dinosaur teachings. We would recommend that you read the following before going further in this section.
