Description: LeVar sets off in his four-wheel drive Jeeposaurus Wreck to explore the mystery surrounding the life and death of dinosaurs. Comic Jerry Stiller is the voice of a dinosaur comedian.

Activity Suggestion: Students can create their own "fossils", using a hard-drying clay slab in styrofoam meat tray--shells, rocks, and sticks can be used to make impressions in the clay and then let them dry. Fantasy stories about the creation of the student's fossils can be dictated to a parent volunteer.
