Understanding Animal Design
Explore Dino Quest as never before as the students get to use the transmitters to discover the mysteries paleontologists are trying to solve, such as why dinosaurs had some of the horns, shields, crests, and tail designs that they had. Standards: LS 3 a, e – pg 9.
Explore Fossil Footprints & Solve a Dino Puzzle
Students will solve mysteries as they investigate footprints and piece together a miniature “dinosaur bone” model. Standards: LS 2 a, c; ES 3 d.
Animal Design and Coloration
Students will discuss how animals have different designs that help them thrive in different environments. Their coloration may help them camouflage or stand out as a warning to predators to not eat them! Students will “design” an animal that may help them survive in a particular environment.
Watershed Photo Detective
Students use Science Center cameras to capture photos of a variety of plants and evidence of storm water pollution during this interactive investigation of our adjacent Santiago Creek Bed. This program is sponsored by Project Pollution Prevention. Standards: LS 3 b, ES 5 a, c – pg 12.
Body Systems & Pathways
Students will have the opportunity to use the DinoQuest transmitters themselves as they investigate the world of dinos, including their body systems, as seen in the giant Argentinosaurus. Standards: LS 2 a, b, c, d.
