Educator-Led ProgramsRaptors in Action

Large brains, razor-sharp teeth and sickle-like claws are just a few of the adaptations that made these dinosaurs highly successful predators. Working in groups, students build a working model of a dinosaur leg. Each group then takes their model into "action" by competing in a relay race that simulates the hunting techniques of these carnivorous beasts.
