Hello everyone! Are you ready for a field trip that takes a huge step back in time?
Today we’re going to visit a Prehistoric Paradise! Prehistory, meaning before history, is the span of time before recorded history or the invention of writing systems. There is not much known about prehistoric times but what we do know has been found as drawings on cave walls.
Did you know that there are about 700 named species of dinosaur? Paleontologists – those are scientists who study fossils and dinosaur bones – believe that there are hundreds more types of dinosaurs still waiting to be discovered!
Here’s some fun facts about dinosaurs: the longest dinosaur is the Seismosaurus which was about as long as 5 school buses. The smallest is the Compsognathus (also known as “Compys”) were just larger than chickens. The tallest is the Sauroposeidon which was about as tall as a building with six floors. The heaviest is the Brachiosaurus which was about as heavy as 17 African elephants. Wow!
Prehistoric times are also typically divided into three separate eras based on the tools and weapons that man used: the Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age.
Hey, speaking of Stone Age, here is a code for your very own Stone Age Outfit souvenir to take home with you from this very special trip back in time! You can enter this code into the Code Shop.
I hope you enjoyed your trip to this Prehistoric Paradise! We’ll see you again in a few days for our next field trip. And remember – you will be tested on what you learned on our field trips so pay attention!
