Let’s Learn About Dinosaurs is a free resource unit put together by Stacey of Layered Soul.
If you really want to learn facts about dinosaurs before you get carried away with activities try researching your questions at Answers in Genesis.
If you are pressed for time read the blog post on Top Ten Dinosaurs Activities.
Discovery Education has a lesson plan to discuss different theories about what dinosaurs looked like. National Geographic has lesson plans for the older students. Here is a dinosaur book list, warning some of the books have evolution content. Teachers Pay Teachers has free lesson plans on dinosaurs with math, handwriting, and determine the size of a dinosaur.
PBS Kids has an interactive dinosaur page.
Do your kids love lapbooks? Try making a dinosaur lapbook.
Let’s watch some videos with dinosaurs in action. (Please note there is 13 second advertisement at the beginning and some clips show dinosaurs being eaten so may not be suitable for young children.)
Use up your empty toilet paper rolls with these dinosaur crafts. If you don’t have any empty toilet paper rolls try making a dinosaur out of junk. If you want to get your hands messy make a dinosaur out of paper-mache. If paper-mache is to messy try making a dinosaur out of Crayola Magic.
If you are the most amazing crafter, build a dinosaur habitat inside an old suitcase.
Try using dried macaroni in clay to make fossils. Popsicle sticks can be used to make dinosaur skeletons. Dog bones can be hidden in the yard for a dinosaur bone hunt. Construct a sensory tub with a dinosaur theme. Make some dinosaur eggs and fossils.
A huge list of dinosaur themed dot-to dot, word searches and mazes.
