Dinosaurs Lesson Plans

Dinosaurs are the largest animals to have ever walked the land. They range in size, with Sauropods being the most gigantic and Albertonykus being the smallest. The earliest dinosaurs date back to over 200 million years ago. The exact reason for their extinction is not fully known; however, isn't it strange how certain reptiles, such as turtles, lived through the extinction of even the smallest dinosaurs?
