|We have these plastic dinosaur templates with punch-out centers.|
We lightly taped the centers down and the children painted around
them as they chose to do, leaving a cool dino print when the
center is removed.
|We had a generic dinosaur and discussed which one was better|
able to protect itself through it's defenses.
|Each child was able to choose the defenses they wanted for|
their dinosaur. After they were dried we projected "their
dinosaur" on the wall and they shared the defenses
they had given their dinosaur.
|We later used the outline stencils to make another view|
of the dinosaurs.
|We played "Pin the Horn on the Triceratops".|
|We made dinosaur tracks with paint.|
|We did the story of the Baby Stegosaurus, "Are You My Mommy?"|
during group time and left the board out for the children
to re-enact it themselves.
|We discovered dinosaur skeletons buried in the dino dough|
and gently brushed away the sediment.
|We created our own fossils from either a T-Rex footprint...|
|or lying small dinos in the dough, then baking on low heat.|
