TIPS ON DOING DINOSAUR ACTIVITIES WITH KIDS

Learning is more fun with dinosaurs. Image of a collection of fun dinosaur activities for kids. Dinosaur math, dinosaur science, dinosaur sensory, and dinosaur literacy activities. #thematicunit #earlylearning #preschool #kindergarten #dinosaurs #unitstudy #learningtheme

Kids love dinosaurs. There is almost something innate to kids that make them love these giant creatures from the past. Even though only a few dinosaur-related species exist today, learning with and about dinosaurs keeps things fresh and exciting in the classroom.

The best way to make your activities go smoothly is to plan ahead. Know what activities you will do each day, and if you’re going to go full dinosaur or if you just want to work in one dinosaur themed activity a day during your other regular lessons.

Look for activities that are easy to do in a group setting if you’ll be doing these activities with a large class. There are a lot of fun activities out there that are a little harder in a group setting.

The dinosaur activity ideas in this list are designed to be done with groups of kids, but you know your kids best. If you think they won’t be able to handle a project as a group, try something a little easier.

Try to have fun and keep things simple where possible.

Before doing activities in the classroom, make sure you know how to facilitate the activity and have everything you need on hand for that activity before starting.

Have fun with your dinosaur activities!
