Berkeley - aimed at adults more than kids but does have a kids section.
http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/diapsids/dinolinks.html 

This site has a significant number of links attached to it.  I found the
‘Dinosaurs for Kids’ section had a good link entitled ‘Education and
Internet’.  Amongst other things, it provides a variety of lesson plans,
songs, poems and a multimedia encyclopaedia.
Learning from the Fossil Record-an animation about the forming of fossils http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/education/explorations/tours/fossil/5to8/Intro.html
This Berkeley site also includes a collection of classroom activities, links to other sites and provide lists and fact sheets on dinosaurs.

extinction and fossils.

Britannica
"This site, instead of being filled with dinosaur pictures and facts, has three main articles which encourage students to research, imagine, and hypothesise. The first activity, 'My adopted dinosaur', would prove an excellent starting point for a classroom unit. The student is asked to create a name, plausible background, eating habits, and appearance using information they have researched from the provided links. An excellent resource for teachers to build on".  http://search.eb.com/dinosaurs/dinosaurs/study/index.htm
