    Dino- unit
    By Sarah

    I love to use butcher paper, trace my kids and let them make a "child-o-saurus" by decorating their tracing. Also, I use tons of different kinds of noodle to make skeletons, and we make a "shape-o-saurus" with differt geometric shapes. If you're feeling brave make a chipping block for the kids to use like archeologists. Fill a trash can with plaster of paris and add plastic dinos, easter eggs, dog bones, etc... and when it's dry, give them goggles, paint brushes, and tooth picks or something of the sort to chip away and find fossils. (Lab coats add a nice touch) You can do the same thing on a smaller scale with Ice Cubes or small blocks of ice.
    we also do a dino print project, I draw a huge dinosaur foot print on butcher paper and then we paint our feet and walk around inside the foot print to see how many human feet it would take to equal a dino print.
