If you are trying to hinge this with your science curriculum, though,
dinos and volcanoes don't really have much to do with each other. The
dinosaurs lived for millions and millions and millions of years and
there was of course lots of volcanic activity through that time--even
a huge event in what is now India. But the world had been around for a
long time then, so the Cretaceous was hardly a time when the world was
new and still forming.
And you probably have heard that some scientists don't think dinosaurs
are extinct at all--that birds are dinosaurs! Pretty cool!
If you are a Creationist, of course, you have a different point of
view about this.
