PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Did you know that over 60 new dinosaur species were discovered in the United States of America over 100 years ago. Two men raced to find the most fossils. Let your students learn more by reading this informative article, answering the text dependent questions and then building paper dinosaur fossil skeletons.
The students can choose to build up to five different dinosaurs including the T-Rex, Triceratops, Velociraptor, Liopleurodon, and the Dilophosaurus.

Everything is aligned to the following common core standards:
