Introduction        

    Welcome to the 1st Grade Summer Technology Academy 2009 on Texas Dinosaurs.  Imagine what it would be like to see a dinosaur up close!  How would the dinosaur sound?  Would the earth shake when it walked?  What kinds of dinosaurs lived in Texas?  What would dinosaur eggs and baby dinosaurs look like?  What does a paleontologist (pa.le.on.tol.o.gist) do?  A paleontologist is a scientist who studies the fossil remains of animals and plants.

    To find answers to these and other questions, you will take a journey by way of the Internet.  You will use Internet Sites to discover stories, facts, sounds, photos, and other fun and interesting information about dinosaurs.

    You will be able to take trips to places where dinosaurs once roamed and find out what it would be like to discover dinosaur fossils and tracks.  Dig in!
