Dino-digging can be dino-mite! So let's all go on a dinosaur hunt--and find a big one!

First, we'll find out everything we can about dinosaurs. They lived all over the world, including the United States, hundreds of millions of years ago. So the older they are, the deeper we'll have to dig.

Things to take:

Goggles Drills, chisels, hammers, brushes Cameras Notebook Pens Change of clothes Plenty of food and water!


First things first: we "make" camp. This means setting up our tents, cots, and kitchen equipment. Then we do what Dr. Paul's team always does. We draw a picture and take photos of the site. This will help us record what we find and where we found it.


We'll check out quarries, cliffs, and deserts. Keep your eyes peeled for fossils! I will, too.

Hey, what's that over there? I think we found something. Maybe it's a dinosaur bone or a dinosaur tooth. Whichever it is, it can tell us about the history of Earth. Big or small, fossils have a lot to say.
