The Dinosaurs and Fossils School Assemblies  are a quick peek into the past through an investigation of the methods used by paleontologists. Paleontologists describe and identify extinct animals through comparisons with living animals and other extinct species to identify similarities and differences, (3-LS4-1)Sometimes facts can be learned and other times only hypotheses can be drawn. The purpose of this program is learn how science works, take a glimpse at animals long vanished, like Dinosaurs (3-LS4-1) and see modern animals as instructive for learning about the past (argument from evidence (3-LS4-1) .

    The assembly is geared for the third grade, this what is in the curriculum under 3-LS4 Biological Evolution, however it can be appropriate for 3rd-5th grades easily. This program does discuss evolution, and cannot be performed in any other way.

Tyrannosaurus Rex’s tooth, though only a model, still gives a really good idea of what this animal was capable of!

The Dinosaurs and Fossils School Assemblies can be performed either with live animals or without them, depending on the focus required and whether animals pose an insurance problem for the school. If live animals are a problem the program can be done where no touching of the animals is allowed. This may satisfy the requirements as well.

The Keichousaurus is a sea going lizard like the Mosasaurs (3-LS4-1)  . They’re closest living relatives are the monitors. To see the similarities between these branches of the same family really makes a great connection for the kids. This is why our Dinosaurs and Fossils School Assemblies are so great for third (3rd) grade, the live animals make the entire show less abstract.
