Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE
Created and Performed by ERTH – Visual & Physical, Inc.
Take a journey through pre-historic times in this performance 65 million years in the making. Students are guided through a breathtaking tour of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures using huge puppets. Filled with audience interaction and plenty of scientific facts, it’s better than any trip to the zoo! Our friendly host will introduce us to a menagerie of insects, mammals, and dinosaurs that inhabited the landscape millions of years ago, including a T. Rex!
COMMON CORE STANDARDS EASILY APPLIED IN YOUR CLASSROOM:
- 2.RL.7: Use information gained from the illustrations and words in a print or digital text to demonstrate understanding of its characters, setting, or plot.
- 4.RI.7: Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
- 6.SL.2: Interpret information presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and explain how it contributes to a topic, text, or issue under study
