    <dct:description>&lt;p&gt;Dinosaurs have great educational potential because they fascinate young minds and the general public. The ancient&lt;br&gt; Chinese, Greeks and Romans explained their fossils with beautiful legends; in the Twentieth century, Jurassic&lt;br&gt; Park and Walking with Dinosaurs brought dinosaur science to the masses. Here I explain how to make three&lt;br&gt; inexpensive and simple activities: the first one teaches how to reconstruct the appearance of a dinosaur and its&lt;br&gt; habitat from fossils and focuses on the requirements of the Scientific Method; it can be done with a computer or&lt;br&gt; manually. The second is a simple drawing practice that teaches the impossibility of faithfully copying an extinct&lt;br&gt; species (despite the current proposals for species &amp;ldquo;de-extinction&amp;rdquo;). The third activity is a dramatization about&lt;br&gt; ethical conflicts related to fossils. The article includes activity cut-outs and detailed steps, how to evaluate and&lt;br&gt; practical advice&lt;/p&gt;</dct:description>
