NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC LIVE SPEAKER (UNITED STATES)

GRADES 2-5

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Visit present-day Morocco and travel back through time with paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim to hear how he discovered a prehistoric monster bigger than T. Rex. The largest known predatory dinosaur, Spinosaurus had spike-shaped teeth, a body more than 50 feet long, and unique adaptations to help it survive. Explore the dangerous Cretaceous-era habitat that Spinosaurus called home. Students will be captivated by the amazing story of how this dinosaur was found, lost, and found again.

Themes: history, geology, paleontology, adventure, geography
