Rating:
Key Learning Areas: Science
Grade Levels: Primary
Location: U.S.A.

Description:
Suitable for students in Years 3 - 6. This webquest is designed for students to work in groups of four. Students must gather information about a plant-eating dinosaur and put together a small presentation to convince a hypothetical park that their choice of herbivore dinosaur should be the one they bring back to life. The dinosaurs to research are: Ankylosaurus(Brontosaurus), Corythosaurus, Saurolophus, Apatosaurus, Iguanodon, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Plateosaurus and Triceratops. The links are easy to navigate through, and very informative. They not only give students the opportunity to explore facts about dinosaurs, but also artworks.

DINOSAURS: How did they become extinct?    Broken Link?

Rating:
Key Learning Areas: HSIE / SOSE / Social Studies; Science
Grade Levels: Primary; Middle
Location: U.S.A.

Description:
Designed for Year 6 students investigating Dinosaur extinction. Students are required to find out the many ways, scientists/ paleontologists believe the dinosaurs became extinct, and develop their own opinion as to what happened to them. In groups of 4, assuming the roles of scientists, each student must pick a different task to accomplish, based on a theory of extinction - catastrophe, disease, the greenhouse effect, a volcano, or the impact of a giant asteroid. Each student needs to then research the theory of choice and then come back to the group to put together their own information into a "highly specialized" news broadcast that will be shown class wide about why the dinosaurs became extinct. Each scientist will need to type out a 1-2 page script and create at least 2 graphics with in a paint or draw program to accompany their script and act as visual aids.

Jurassic Park - An information Literacy WebQuest    Broken Link?

Rating:
Key Learning Areas: Science; Technology & Design
Grade Levels: Middle
Location: U.S.A.

Description:
Designed for students in Year 7 to develop skills in information literacy but could be used for upper Primary/Elementary classes. This webquest is designed around Jurassic Park and dinosaurs but students need not have read the book. The aim of this webquest is to judge the quality of a Web site. After researching about the "best web site" students have to design a rubric for evaluating Web sites, then evaluate web sites looking for the best sites about specific dinosaurs: hadrosaurs, maiasaurs, velociraptors, tyrannosaurs, dilophosaurs, procompsognathids, stegosaurs and cearadactyls. Students have to write a memo recommending the five best sites about one of these dinosaurs explaining why they chose those web sites.

The fossil models should be buried in boxes of dirt (or sand) that are place around the room as separate stations. The paleontologist is to determine what type of fossil the team has found and classify the dinosaur into its appropriate family; the worker is to do the digging and identify what the dinosaur ate; the draftsman is to record a drawing of the fossil and determine the dinosaur's tooth length; and the photographer is to record the fossil digitally and research special features of the dinosaur fossil. As a group, they are to record their findings and attach a photograph of their "find".
