Dinosaurs powerpoint by Jeanne Guichard. Tyrannosaurus.
Tyrannosaurus Rex was a fierce predator that walked on two powerful legs. This meat-eater had a huge head with large, pointed, replaceable teeth and well-developed jaw muscles. It had tiny arms, each with two fingers. Tyrannosaurus Rex was up to 40 feet tall.www.itsnature.org
Name means tyrant reptile. (King)
It has also been called Brontosaurus (thunder reptile) but the name Apatosaurus was given first. When fully grown it weighed about 30 tons! It therefore spent a great deal of time in the water which helped support its immense weight. They could live to be about 200 years old.
Name means three horned face. Triceratops had a bony frill to protect its head, neck and shoulders. It's head was enormous, nearly a third as long as its whole body. Its curved jaw was very strong and like a parrots beak. Although it was a plant eater it was very fierce - even fighting with its own kind. Triceratops is the best known horned dinosaur. It had three horns: one on its nose and two long ones above its eyes.
Allosaurus was a large carnivorous dinosaur, which had a very large head, which was balanced only by his very long, very heavy tail.
In what is now the United States, Allosaurus was the largest common predator dinosaur.
It lived about 100 million years ago, in the Jurassic period of Earth.
The term 'double beam' refers to a special feature of diplodocus' backbone. There were small bones below the backbone which had a piece running forward as well as the normal piece that runs back - a 'double beam'. Diplodocus was the one of the longest dinosaurs, it was about as long as a tennis court. Its brain was about the size of a hen's egg
Name means double beam

PowerPoint by Jeanne Guichard
Five enormous dinosaurs
Shouting out a roar;
Along came an alligator
Then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs
sitting in a tree;
Then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs
were taken to the zoo;
‘Til one got away,
Two enormous dinosaurs were having such fun;
