More Report-Writing Guidelines


T. rex skullFirst, get to know your dinosaur. Read as much information about it as you can find. Try the Internet and the library. Get some information about the time when your dinosaur lived and the place(s) it lived (see the sections in ZoomDinosaurs.com with the "Mesozoic Era"). Remember that the Mesozoic Era was very different than the present in many ways, including the climate, geography, plant and animal life, etc. Then, think like a dinosaur.

For information on particular dinosaurs, try the Dinosaur Information Sheets, the Dinosaur and Paleontoloy Dictionary, Dinosaur fact sheets, or Dinosaur Printouts.

When you write your report, try to answer as many of the following questions as you can (but unfortunately, not all of these things are known for all dinosaurs):

Use your own words. Check your spelling and grammar. Define any technical terms (look them up in the Dinosaur Dictionary). And remember to think like a dinosaur.


References: When you write your bibliography, list all of your references. A format for each type of publication follows (there are different formats for different media): Author(s) are listed last name first, first name or initials (as cited in the publication)

For example: Zoom Dinosaurs would be cited as follows:

Col, Jeananda. Zoom Dinosaurs. http://www.ZoomDinosaurs.com 1999.
