Dinosaur Timeline & World Map

Dinosaurs roamed the Earth for over 160 million years and lived on every continent. They came in all shapes and sizes, from the small and agile Velociraptor to the massive and long-necked Brachiosaurus. With this world map and timeline poster, children can learn about the different types of dinosaurs that lived during different periods and where they called home. The poster shows the different continents and their locations on the map and highlights key time periods in the Earth's history, such as the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods, when dinosaurs were the dominant species on the planet. This poster is an excellent way for children to learn about these fascinating creatures and the world they lived in.

The Dinosaur Timeline & World map measures "45.25" W x 23.5" H and has a 3D timeline ledge naming nine dinosaurs and facts on Triceratops, Diplodocus, Ankylosaurus, Plateosaurus, Stegosaurus, Agustinia, Coloradisaurus, Allosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. An additional nine dinosaur fact map markers identify a Herrerasaurus, Compsognathus, Minmi, Velociraptor, Kundurosaurus, Pterodactylus, Coelophysis, Rugops, and Dreadnoughtus on the map, as well as seven map makers identify the location of a Plesiosaur, Mosasaurus, Ichthyosaurus, Liopleurodon, Mauisaurus, Kronosaurus, and Megaldon. Also, three map markers identifying the Makhonjwa Mountains, Deccan Traps, and the location of where the asteroid impacted the Earth to cause the mass extinction of the dinosaurs. There is also a three-page activity sheet covering the changing continents, a good diet for dinosaurs, a Dino Hunt, Shadows under the surface, and 16 questions Dino Evolution map hunt. Made from FSC-certified recycled greyboard, it is plastic-free, and no glue or scissors are required to build the timeline and world map.

What makes this Dinosaur Timeline & World Map so much fun?

The map can be mounted on a wall or taken apart and placed back in the package. We build our Dinosaur Timeline & World map on the dining room table, which has been on the table for the past few weeks, and each day our 11-year-old daughter places one of her dinosaurs on the map. I asked her what she thought of the map; she loves it and plans to take it to school for show and tell; she is planning on taking the map along with her dinosaurs. I love this map, it is fun and engaging, and there are countless applications for a dinosaur enthusiast. Dinosaur hunting is just the first step and would make a great addition to any playroom, classroom, or dining room!
