Re: Dinosaur classroom activities - IDM98
Let me take this auspicious moment to remind y'all about International
Dinosaur Month (IDM98) which is from October 1-31, 1998.
Not only is this sort of classroom presentation exactly the kind of
activity that the event is supposed to encourage in schools everywhere,
but we also seek related ideas which will be published in a "hint list"
at the IDM website.
There is a truly miniscule "idea list" at the moment, but please keep
sending suggestions directly to us mailto:IDM98@Juno.Com or to this
The best ones will be published both on the website and also in a
planned book. They can then be spread to as many classrooms as possible.
