Dinosaurs...Part 2

We completed our dinosaur unit this week. It was a blast! Here are some of the highlights:

Pterodactyl Craft
This is very easy. Take a pterodactyl template and fold in half. Cut it out. (I did it for the kids.)
Have students color a clothespin and the template. 
Glue the Wings inside the clothespin (hot glue works best.)
Have the handle of the clothespin be the open mouth and glue on some eyes. Fun and easy!

The anatomy of a triceratops. This was made with butcher paper and toilet/paper towel tubes. 

T-Rex bone puzzle by Scholastic. 

Baking soda dino eggs.
These are super easy to make. 
Put a whole box of baking soda in a bowl and add water until you get a clay consistency. 
Scoop some in your hand and add a mini plastic dino to the egg. Fold dough around the dino to form an egg.  Let dry overnight.
 We studied Paleontologists and the tools that they use on a dino dig. Then I have them their own tools.
 1. Paleontologist Hat
2. Pick (toothpick or popsicle stick)
3. Brush (paintbrush)
4. Magnifying glass
 Some students really took their time and others cracked that egg as fast as they could!
 After they were done, they got to play with the "dough".
 Stegosaurus Fun Food
Dino week is always a good time. Thanks to all the parents who gave me the toilet paper tubes! :)
