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