When you think of fossils, most people think of the “terrible lizards” of the Mesozoic, the dinosaurs! In this digital field trip, Alf Museum educators help students discover some amazing dinosaur fossils from the Alf Museum collection and discuss basic principles of paleontology: what are (and aren’t) fossils; what makes a dinosaur a dinosaur; how are dinosaurs classified; and what was the world of the dinosaurs like. In this two-way interactive experience, students are encouraged to ask questions and expand their perspectives about the world of dinosaurs.
Designed for grades: K-12, College, and General
Length: 50 – 60 minutes
Fee: $75.00 general
