Create this cute dinosaur craft where students make their own dinosaur and add their name to it!
First design your dinosaur background. On A3 paper we used crayons to draw the background then edicol dyed over it.
Print out the dinosaur images onto lots of different coloured card. Cut out the dinosaurs, then cut and separate the dinosaurs into heads, bodies and tails. Students can then create their new dinosaur using different body parts and colours. Glue this onto their background.
Afterwards use the editable '-o-saurus' and add your students names to the front of it. Glue these to the backgrounds to finish the craft.
My students loved making crazy dinosaurs named after them!
Create these dinosaur fossils using plaster of paris.
Follow the directions on the plaster of paris tub to make the plaster. We added edicol dye to the mixture to add more colour. The plaster of paris was poured into little round trays (we first put down a layer of gladwrap to make it easier to remove the fossil when dry). Students selected their dinosaur of choice and pressed it into the plaster. (Dont leave it in there too long as the plaster sets quite quickly!) While still wet we poked a hole through the top so they would be easy to hang.)
Students were amazed at the detail of print that was left in the plaster!
