Class Experience

Students will identify dinosaurs of the theropod group of dinosaurs.
Students will distinguish between some of the many sub-families of theropods, such as tyrannosaurs, oviraptors, dromeosaurs, carnosaurs, troodontids, and avian dinosaurs.
Students will examine features of organisms, such as teeth, to infer how they ate.
Students will discuss adaptations that enable creatures to defend themselves from predators, or to be successful predators.
I teach paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History and am excited to share the love of dinosaurs with your learner!
Learners will use coloring supplies, such as markers or crayons, to complete their theropod book. All printouts will be provided by the instructor. If you can't print out the pictures, your learner can use them as reference while making their own drawing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be looking at fossils and reconstructions of extinct animals, including skulls, teeth, and other fossil evidence. Carnivorous behavior and extinction will be discussed in an age appropriate manner.
