Capstone Announces New PebbleGo Dinosaurs

PebbleGo-FeatThis week, Capstone is revealing a sneak peek of PebbleGo Dinosaurs, its new pre-K−3 database, at the Capstone booth (#2141) at the Texas Library Association (TLA) annual conference (April 14–17) in Austin, Texas. PebbleGo Dinosaurs will be officially released this upcoming August, joining Capstone’s other database modules (Animals, Biographies, Science, and Social Studies) covering content for grades pre-K−3.

PebbleGo Dinosaurs will feature articles about more than 125 dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus rex, Stegosaurus, and Velociraptor. It also highlights some of the lesser knowns, such as Ankylosaurus, Apatosaurus, and Edmontosaurus, all spotlighted in the film Jurassic World, part of the ”Jurassic Park” film series, opening June 12.

PebbleGo Dinosaurs will group dinosaurs in three broad categories—beaked, bird-like, and long necks—with several easy-to-navigate subcategories for young researchers, such as armored, bird-footed, horned, and meat-eating raptors.

The database will explore each dinosaur’s body, habitat, food, and behavior; compare the dinosaurs to modern-day animals; and include a range map showing their geographic region. Accompanying activities, games, a question of the day, and teacher materials will round out the learning opportunities.
