Make a Dino


Make a copy of a dinosaur skeleton. Cut the picture apart separating head, legs, ribs, tail, and so on. Then make multiple copies of each body part and give each child a set of the parts. Tell children to use the pieces to build their own dinosaurs. Children can work to decide where they want pieces to go. Accept any creations. Explain that this is how archeologists put together fossils that they discover.
