When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth: Unit 1 – Evolution and the Origins of Life Unit 2 – The Dinosaurs Unit 3 – Biology, the Biggest, the Smallest, and the Strangest Unit 4 – The Discovery of Dinosaurs Existence Unit 5 – Modern-day Study of Dinosaurs Unit 6 – The T-Rex, King of Dinosaurs Unit 7 – Velociraptor, the Smartest Creature to ever walk Earth? Unit 8 – The Herbivores Unit 9 – The Extinction Unit 10 – Could we bring dinosaurs back? The first dinosaurs lived on a large landmass called Pangaea and evolved from an earlier form of reptile named Chordates around 230 million years ago. All of the different continents on Earth were once connected so a dinosaur could walk from America all the way to Australia if it chose. Dinosaurs were all cold blood and like their reptile cousins, they have all the heat they need from the sun to warm their blood. The cold-blooded dinosaurs would lay their eggs and waited for their offspring to hatch and some of them may at this stage have been warm-blooded. Many dinosaurs were bigger than any of the animals we see today on earth. Some of the largest dinosaurs had over 1,000 trillion cells, like the Ultrasaurus. To put it in perspective we as humans have only 70 trillion cells. These huge animals could have weighed up to 50 tons, which is the same as a fully loaded truck. Then, there were other smaller dinosaurs, even smaller than a chicken and some could even fly and had feathers. Designed for both classroom & home / independent learning.
