What Was The Biggest Dinosaur?

The fossils we find today tell us that many dinosaurs were big — some were as big as or even bigger than a school bus!  Our friend Elliot asked Dr. Richard, our very own paleontologist: What was the biggest dinosaur?  Join Dr. Richard in this week’s Ask A Doer as he steps back to the Cretaceous Period to find the biggest dinosaurs — the location of where we’ve found their fossils may surprise you!

Terms You’ve Learned:

Dinosaur - Dinosaurs were the mainland animals on Earth for more than 150 million years. They were a type of reptile. Some of them were the largest creatures that ever walked on land. Today, birds are a type of dinosaur!

Fossils – Fossils are the remains or traces of plants, animals, and other organisms that lived long ago. Fossils give scientists clues about the past.

Cretaceous Period – A geological time period that began 145 million years ago and ended 66 million years ago; it followed the Jurassic Period and was succeeded by the Paleogene Period.
