Life on Earth: The History of Life on Our Planet
Let’s go back in time to the beginning of Life on Earth! It’s a journey through time to 550 million years ago when life began on planet Earth. Dino guides us through the three eras of life on our planet: the Paleozoic, the Mesozoic, and the Cenozoic—marine life to dinosaurs to mammals. We learn about evolution and extinction. The day a giant asteroid hit planet Earth. Why the early dragonflies were as big as hawks. Presented by award-winning children’s performer Dino O’Dell, this program engages school audiences with humor, music, and lots of audience interaction. It includes songs, stories, and an animated video presentation.
