Summer Theme Week – Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs

*Just an FYI – I am a Christian and I believe in Creationism.  This dinosaur unit is based on that belief.*

Day 1: Dino Digdino puzzle

  • Read “What Really Happened to Dinosaurs” pages 6-11
  • The book mentions that it can be very difficult for a scientist to put dinosaur bones together.
  • Set up a Dino Dig in a sandbox with wooden dinosaur bones.  This 3D puzzle would be great to use for the dig.  Since I have 3 kids, I will probably order 3 puzzles.  I will then put a color code on each one with a small colored dot to indicate which pieces go together.  
  • Once the bones have all been found, we will construct the dinosaurs.  Using books from the library – we will learn about the different types of dinosaurs.
  • Create a dinosaur journal and record information:  What is the name of your dinosaur?  What does your dinosaur eat? How big is your dinosaur? List 3 new facts you learned about your dinosaur. etc.
  • Online Dinosaur Puzzle

Day 2: Dino Eggsdino egg

  • Dino Activity Books or Printable Worksheets
  • Ceramic dinosaurs to paint HERE.
