Which dinosaur is the best?
Eliza Lombos Presents
SECTION 1 of 3:
Welcome to my presentation, aiming to find out which dinosaur is truly the best! This presentation is set up in three sections: the introduction, information about dinosaurs and the investigation itself!

"Dinosaurs became extinct, a meteor hit them and killed them off. However, we still find their bones today, that show their deaths but provide knowledge for people. That can be like us, something hit us and knocked us down but even through the looks of our struggles, we still make a good impact on the world."- Anonymous
SECTION 2 of 3:
Non-bird dinosaurs lived between about 245 and 66 million years ago in a time known as the Mesozoic era. During this era, the land gradually split from one huge supercontinent into smaller ones. The associated changes in the climate and vegetation affected how dinosaurs evolved.
Introduction to Dinosaurs
Scientists divide the Mesozoic era into three periods: the Triassic, Jurrasic and Cretaceous.
The Mesozoic ERA
The most famous dinosaur from each continent (excluding Oceania and Antarctica).

SECTION 3 of 3:
*Sources will not be cited for this section as I will be looking at many different websites to determine the best results
The Criteria by which the dinosaurs will be judged (mean average of the three numbers)
How long was the species around for? (scored compared to the other dinosaurs it's up against)
How did the dinosaur adapt to overcome challenges?
How did the dinosaur adapt to attack their prey / other dinosaurs?
Attack / Defence

The Triassic Period
The Triassic Period was 252-201 million years ago. The dinosaurs that were around back then aren't very well known today, however in this time period the Icthyosaurs would take to the seas to eventually dominate the waters in the Jurassic Period. For this period I have chosen to write about the Eoraptor, a small bipedal theropod that lived in what is now Northwest Argentina. It was one of the first dinosaurs ever to have evolved.
The Jurassic Period
The Jurassic Period extended from 201.3 milion to 145 million years ago immediately following the Triassic Period. It was a time of significant global change as the supercontinent Pangea split apart. The dinosaur I have chosen to research for this period is the Mamenchisaurus, a genus of sauropod dinosaur known for their incredibly long necks. Most species were around 15-26m in length but some species could have been up to 35 based on two undescribed vertibrae.
The Cretaceous Period
The Cretaceous Period began 145 million years ago and ended 66 million years ago. The climate and plant life were very different to how they were today - there were temperate rainforests at both poles which back then were ice free. The dinosaur I have chosen to write about for this period is the Luanchanraptor. They were moderate-sized dromaeosaurs, estimated at 1.1 to 1.8m in length and 2.2 to 2.5kg in weight. They can be determined from other dromaeosaurs by their very stiff tail tips.
Dinosaurs with more than one answer were given their own slice of the pi chart.
Note: Participants were allowed more than one answer each
