Dinosaur Train sparks children's interest in life science and natural history. As they explore a variety of animals, children develop the inquiry skills and knowledge needed to help them think, talk and act like paleontologists.
Dinosaur Train's educational goals are to:
1) Spark children’s interest in science, especially life science, natural science and paleontology.
2) Develop children's inquiry skills to help children think like scientists, by engaging in the following behaviors: asking questions, making observations, making predictions, making connections, forming hypotheses / developing possible explanations, investigating and exploring the natural world, drawing conclusions, and sharing findings with others.
3) Provide core science knowledge to enable children to explore the worlds of life science, natural science and paleontology.
4) Inspire children to visit local science and natural history museums, go on "fossil hunts," and conduct their own explorations and investigations about the natural world.
