It might be hard to imagine bringing a dinosaur into your classroom. With these online resources you won’t have to look too far. You will find the perfect app or website for your next unit of study. If you want to help students build background knowledge before a read aloud, or make connections to a science unit, you’ll want to dig into this list.
Recently I visited a classroom and made a reference to the movie Jurassic Park. The kids quickly reminded me that the movie was called Jurassic World. It’s the same amusing response I get from a child when I incorrectly refer to a movie as a video. No matter what age of students you’re working worth, they are sure to be fascinated by these massive creatures that lived so long ago.
