Educator Resources for Dinosaurs

Long before humans showed up, dinosaurs dominated the world! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby journey through prehistoric times to track the evolution of these "terrible lizards" through the Mesozoic Era. From the Triassic Period to the Jurassic and Cretaceous, you'll watch dinosaurs grow in size and diversity as the super-continent of Pangaea split. You'll see well-known species like the Stegosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus rex, and discover lesser-known species like the tiny Eoraptor and the massive Apatosaurus. You'll also explore the link between dinosaurs and birds, and learn all about the mass extinctions that wiped out most life on Earth—more than once!
