This lesson takes advantage of younger students' natural fascination with dinosaurs and explores the following questions: 'What happened to the dinosaurs?', 'Does anyone really know for sure?',and 'What is the difference between fact and fiction?'. Through the use of an interactive feature, video, and classroom discussion, students should understand that dinosaurs once lived on Earth but have completely disappeared, investigate some theories about their extinction and the rise of the mammals, and examine the relationship between a hypothesis and evidence.
