Students will be working on these in class as well as at home as individual or family projects.

Important information:

*The students have been asked to choose a dinosaur or archosaur from the Mesozoic Age: Triassic, Jurassic or Cretaceous.

*Students will be required to make a project to bring in as part of their presentation. This will be done at home, with family help, if desired. The written report will mostly be done in class
