Dinosaur and Prehistoric Animal Drawings

Pictures of Prehistoric Animals

As part of Everything Dinosaur’s outreach activities supporting summer schools we challenged one group of Key Stage Two children to have a go at designing their very own dinosaur.  We explained how diverse the Dinosauria were and the various ecological niches occupied by this group of ancient reptiles then we set the children to work.  We wanted to help encourage their creativity as well as to get them considering such aspects as adaptation, diet and habitat.  We received some very colourful and indeed, very creative illustrations.

This assignment was part of a wider project which Everything Dinosaur team members were involved in.  The focus was on literacy and coming up with imaginative and fun ways in which we could help the children with their writing.  The dinosaur topic and related scheme of work certainly proved very popular with the children.  The teaching team and volunteers were extremely enthusiastic too.

Lots of Different Prehistoric Animals were Created

With our dinosaur expert having explained the link between birds and dinosaurs and shown examples of feathered dinosaurs such as Microraptor, Beipiaosaurus, Therizinosaurus and Caudipteryx, naturally we got a lot of feathers in the children’s dinosaur designs.

Meat-eating dinosaur creations proved the most popular, especially with the boys, but there were also plenty of plant-eating dinosaurs created as well.  Lots of long-necked dinosaurs, dinosaurs with horns, even armoured ones.  It certainly was a very creative exercise.

Commenting on the work undertaken by company, a teacher praised Everything Dinosaur for the provision of some inspiring resources.

A spokesperson for Everything Dinosaur stated:

“It has been fun to examine the wonderful and very imaginative dinosaur creations and we were really impressed with the amount of labelling that had also been going on.  Lots of colourful dinosaurs on display along with numerous adjectives.”

Preparing for a Trip to the Jurassic

Going on a Trip to the Jurassic

As part of Everything Dinosaur’s summer school commitments team members have spent the day preparing for trip into the east Midlands to help a group of Key Stage two children explore fossils.  Our plan is to set up in the school an artificial beach and to populate it with various fossils from our recent digs and field work.  Most of the fossils we will be using come from marine sediments and consist of lots of invertebrates, although there is some fossilised wood and even shark teeth.  Over the last year or so, we have been involved in a number of trips to explore highly fossiliferous sediments and as a result we have plenty of fossils to use in this fossils and dinosaur workshop session.

Lots of Fossils “on hand”

It is going to be a dinosaur workshop with a difference.  Having populated the beach with various fossils, we are going to challenge the children to find them.  What they find they can keep, so long as the mums, dads and teachers present are OK with this.  In addition, we will be challenging the children to help us with some fossil identification.  This will involve lots of tactile fossil handling and helping them with their reading and writing.

We have also created a range of drawing materials so that the children can take home a drawing to colour in depicting what life was like in their part of the world during the Middle Jurassic.

The picture we have created is a composition consisting of many of the illustrations of Jurassic marine fauna we have stored in our database.  The drawing materials reflect the sort of fossils that the children will be able to discover on our artificial beach. There will be fragments of coral, bivalve shells, including some nice examples of “devil’s toenails” – Gryphaea.  As well as the various bivalves, there are Belemnite guards to find and pieces of fossilised Ammonite shell.  We have gastropods, fish scales, crinoids (sea lilies) and lots of lovely brachiopods, especially those that superficially resemble old lamps (often referred to as lampshells).

It should be a fun dinosaur workshop with lots of fossils to collect and to identify.

Dinosaurs Inspire at Summer School

Kingswood Primary Academy Summer School – Its All About Dinosaurs!

The start of the week (Monday) and an Everything Dinosaur team member was dispatched to Northamptonshire to visit Kingswood Primary Academy to help kick-off their summer school with its theme all about dinosaurs.  The enthusiastic teaching team have developed a two week summer school with a focus on literacy to help the children (mainly Key Stage 2), to get to grips with composition, transcription and sentence construction.  With a topic like dinosaurs, there is certainly a great deal to write about.  For example, there are over 1,200 different types of dinosaur (genera) and new fossil discoveries are being made all the time.

The busy morning started with a short assembly which commenced immediately after registration.  In the assembly, Mr Bark (class teacher Year 5), outlined what the children would be doing during the course of the day and introduced our dinosaur expert who explained that fossils of prehistoric animals get discovered in the East Midlands of England and he demonstrated that fossils can even be found in the gravel outside of the classrooms.

Then it was on with the activities.  The children were split into three groups (Stegosaurs, Brachiosaurs and the Triceratops group) and each group was given the opportunity to participate in a very tactile fossil exploration and dinosaur workshop led by Everything Dinosaur.  This session helped to reinforce learning whilst retaining the focus on literacy.  The kinaesthetic nature of the dinosaur workshop supported the other two sessions offered over the course of the day.  The children were challenged to create a prehistoric animal timeline, jam-packed with lots of information and useful facts researched and prepared by the groups, many of the children demonstrated a surprising amount of knowledge.

Everything Dinosaur had supplied lots of dinosaur and prehistoric animal themed resources to help support the teaching aims and objectives.  The lesson plan we devised for our tactile fossil handling and exploration session helped to support the work of the teachers.  There were lots of examples of writing on display and some great use of adjectives too.

In addition to supplying the resources for the timeline exercise, our expert, during his dinosaur workshop challenged the children to have a go at designing their very own dinosaur.  He used a modern reconstruction of Triceratops (T. horridus) to help inspire the children.  There were some amazing creations on display by the end of the afternoon, with names like “beastiesaurus” and “feathersaurus”, with once again, lots of evidence of labelling, independent research, comprehension and sentence construction.

Super labelling on the diagrams and we were really impressed to see that many of the budding young palaeontologists had thought about the animal’s colours, what it might have eaten and how big it may have been.  There was just time at the end of the day to answer some of the many questions from the children (and from the teachers too).

The summer school is running for a fortnight and next week our dinosaur expert will return to the school to help out further.  For the next visit we are going to try to take each group on a seaside fossil hunt, quite a challenge when you consider how far from the sea Northamptonshire is!

Dinosaur and Science Speed Stacking Memory Game (Key Stages 3 and 4)

Speed Stacking Memory Game – Science Learning (Key Stages 3 and 4)

With a greater emphasis on factual recall enshrined within the new national curriculum here’s a simple idea to help young scientists remember terms and sequences as part of their science studies.  Create a fun speed stacking memory game that will help pupils to memorise key points and key items of information.  This idea can be modified to fit all sorts of teaching objectives and best of all, it gives teachers and home educationalists a wonderful opportunity to introduce how data can be plotted and shown visually.

Resources

  • Plastic cups (raid the water cooler)!
  • Sheet of labels (Everything Dinosaur supplies various sets of labels – size of dinosaurs, sorting out geological periods and for older students, Linnaean hierarchy labels on the “dinosaurs for schools” website).
  • Sticky tape to secure labels to the bottom of the plastic cups.
  • A stop watch or other timing device (Ipad, Smart phone and so forth).

To access the free, downloadable Everything Dinosaur school resources: Dinosaurs for School Website visit the downloads section for the free, teaching and educational resources.

Let’s imagine that you have to explain about deep time and the geological periods as part of the teaching involved at Key Stage Three (genetics and evolution).  To help reinforce learning, challenge the students to create a stack of plastic cups in the correct geological order, mapping out the fossil record of visible life.  Just stick labels to the bottom of the cups – Cambrian, Cretaceous, Jurassic and so forth and once having explained about geological time challenge the class to stack the cups in the correct order in the fastest possible time.  As an extension you can plot the results and the class to work out the best way to make a visual representation of the data – bar charts, line graphs perhaps?

Handy Labels for the Speed Stacking Game?

Perhaps, you are working with Key Stage 4 and you are covering how changes in biology have led to a better understanding of the process of evolution.  You want to explain how life is classified and introduce Linnaean classification, from a Domain down to a Species a simple stacking game can help to reinforce learning and to introduce a fun element into the lesson plan.  Record how long it takes each student to stack the cups in the correct sequence.  As an extension, can the class calculate the mean, mode and median stacking times?

Getting to Grips with Scientific Classification

Just add the labels to the plastic cups to make a fun memory game.

This is a very simple but effective science speed stacking game.  It is great for helping students to memorise terms and sequences such as geological periods.  Lots of different labels can be created, perhaps even leading to the development of a dinosaur themed speed stacking game.

Extension Ideas

  • Challenge the students to create the best way of visually displaying the data
  • Can the class calculate the mode, median and mean
  • Plot a distribution curve of the timing results, what are the variances?
  • Can the students devise science themed speed stacking games of their own?

Dinosaur Themed Speed Stacking Game

Dinosaur Themed Speed Stacking Game

With many primary schools undertaking a term topic on dinosaurs and fossils or perhaps incorporating prehistoric animals as a subject area in a special science week, here’s a simple and fun memory game which can help budding palaeontologists memorise facts.

As part of Everything Dinosaur’s work in schools we have devised a speed stacking game, which challenges children to sort out and order a dinosaur themed food web.  In addition, we have added a speed stacking game whereby children are challenged to sort out dinosaurs by size.  No need to worry teachers, and teaching assistants!  In the free, download we also provide a guide to the correct size order of the various dinosaurs we have chosen.  Most of the children will be very familiar with the likes of Triceratops, Brachiosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex.  Perhaps as an extension activity you might challenge the class to do some independent research to find out about the dinosaurs we feature in our speed stacking games.

Dinosaur Themed Speed Stacking Game Labels

The picture above shows the set of speed stacking labels created by Everything Dinosaur.  There is a five stage, dinosaur themed food web, based on meat-eating dinosaurs, which is ideal for reinforcing learning when it comes to teaching about food chains, herbivores, carnivores and so forth.  In addition Everything Dinosaur team members have added an eight stage, dinosaur sizing, speed stacking game.  Can the children stack the plastic cups in the correct order?

To access dinosaur themed learning resources and for more information about Everything Dinosaur’s work in schools: Everything Dinosaur for Schools

Resources Required

  • Plastic cups
  • Sheet of labels (Everything Dinosaur supplies various sets of labels on the company’s “dinosaurs for schools” website).
  • Sticky tape to stick the labels to the bottom of the plastic cups.
  • A stop watch or an Ipad, Smart phone or such like to time how long each child takes to stack the cups correctly.

Record How Long it Takes for Each Child To Stack the Cups Correctly

The class can be split into teams to encourage small group work.  The children can take turns to stack the cups and measure the time taken.

Extension Ideas

  1. Challenge the class to carry out some independent research on the dinosaurs featured in the game
  2. Record the times taken by the children, can they work out the best way to display this data – tables, bar chart, graph etc?
  3. Can the children design their own speed stacking game with a dinosaur theme?

This is a simple and very easy activity for the classroom.  It helps develop hand/eye co-ordination and motor skills, as well as being an excellent way for children to memorise information.

Dinosaur Workshops Aid Reading and Literacy

Dinosaur Workshops Aid Reading and Literacy in Schools

A dinosaur themed term topic might be introduced into a school’s scheme of work with Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 to help the children learn about the properties of light, rocks, the age of the Earth and to gain an appreciation of scientific working.  However, as dinosaurs and prehistoric animals fire the imagination, this term topic can also do wonders for a child’s confidence in reading and their writing skills.  As Everything Dinosaur team members visit schools to deliver dinosaur and fossil themed workshops, we are keen to add activities and extensions that encourage children to write.

Thank You Letters to Everything Dinosaur

An example of our work with schools, a typical extension activity, is to ask the children to send in thank you letters to our dinosaur expert.  They can also include questions that they think of as well.  Writing a thank you letter dovetails nicely into the PSHE (personal, health and social education) of the national curriculum and it helps children gain confidence with sentence construction and the layout of written communications.  Letter writing also permits individual working and the teacher can see how much a child has learned as he/she has followed the term topic.  Letter writing makes a good, follow up exercise for the children immediately after any recall and recount activity once the dinosaur workshop has finished.

Dinosaur Definitions – Practice with Labels and Vocabulary Development

Another simple activity that involves independent learning is to have the children research individual prehistoric animals.  Explain to the children what the term dinosaurs actually means (fearfully great or terrible lizards).  Then, use an example such as Tyrannosaurus rex (pronounced tie-ran-oh-sore-us rex), which means “Tyrant Lizard King”.  Set an exercise for the children where they can research different dinosaurs and write an explanation as to how that dinosaur got its name.

Here is an example from Amy (Year 2)

  • Triceratops (Try-sera-tops)
  • Means: Three Horned Face
  • Explanation: “This big plant-eating dinosaur had three horns on his face, two big ones over his eyes and a little one over his nose.”

A picture of the dinosaur can be provided, feel free to contact Everything Dinosaur, as our experts are happy to email over drawing materials and fact sheets to schools and home educators.

The picture of the prehistoric animal can be labelled by the child and perhaps more capable learners can provide additional facts and information on that dinosaur via discovery learning.

* More confident and capable learners can be challenged to design their own dinosaur and to come up with an explanation for the name that they give it, here’s an example from Matthew:

  • Boneahsaurus (Bone-ah-saw-us)
  • Means: Very Bony Lizard
  • Explanation: “When scientists found this dinosaur they were amazed at how many bones it had in its skeleton.”

Matthew even provided a lovely drawing of his dinosaur, it did look very bony.  Glad we did not have the job of assembling all those bones.

As dinosaurs are rarely out of the media these days and with most children having a fascination for these prehistoric animals, dinosaurs as a term topic provides plenty of scope for a creative, imaginative and very rewarding scheme of work for the class.

Dinosaur Hokey Cokey (Hokey Pokey) Song

Dinosaur Song – Hokey Cokey/Hokey Pokey

When delivering dinosaur workshops to children in Reception classes or Year 1 we like to incorporate lots of physical exercises to keep the children enthused and to help reinforce learning.  Our dedicated teaching team provide all sorts of ideas to support extension activities following one of our school visits and we dove-tail our work into the national curriculum helping the teachers to provide a rich and challenging term topic or dinosaur themed science day.

A Reception Class Prepares Questions for our Dinosaur Workshop

Questions, questions and even more questions!

Questions, questions and even more questions!

As part of our large range of prepared extension activities we enclose a version of the “Hokey Cokey/Hokey Pokey” that has been modified so that it can be used as a song activity to support a lesson all about dinosaurs.  Everything Dinosaur recommends that the children be given plenty of space for this activity so that they have room to carry out the actions that accompany the song.

Dinosaur Song – sung to the Tune of the “Hokey Cokey/Hokey Pokey”

Don’t forget the actions, this is a great song and dance activity for budding young palaeontologists.

Verse 1 (use feet for the actions)

You put your big feet in

You put your big feet out

You put your big feet in

And you stomp them all about

You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn around

That’s what it’s all about

Verse 2 (use hands and fingers for the actions)

You put your sharp claws  in

You put your sharp claws out

You put your sharp claws  in

And you wave them all about

You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn around

That’s what it’s all about

Verse 3 (use arms to make a tail that the children can swing behind them)

You swing your long tail in

You swing your long tail out

You swing your long tail in

And you shake it all about

You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn around

That’s what it’s all about 

Verse 4  (have the children pull a “scary dinosaur face”)

You put your pointy teeth in

You put your pointy teeth out

You put your pointy teeth in

And you crunch them all about

You do the Dino-Pokey and you turn around

That’s what it’s all about – Roar, Roar Roar!

Note to Teachers and Teaching Assistants

This activity can be undertaken in a large classroom, or better still the school hall or gym.  Have the children spread out or perhaps they could form a big circle, but make sure that they have enough space so that they can perform the actions safely, we want to avoid any bumps, mishaps or bruises.

As an extension activity idea, perhaps with more confident learners, can the children write their own verse?

Everything Dinosaur provides a free download that contains all the words to the dinosaur “Hokey Cokey/Hokey Pokey” song, plus a large range of free to download teaching resources, simply go to Everything Dinosaur’s specialist teaching website and visit the free teaching downloads pages.

Teaching Year 4 About Mary Anning

Year 4 Learn All About Mary Anning

When Everything Dinosaur team members attended the Blackpool Celebrating Science Conference last week, they helped organise a competition for the young scientists from the schools that attended.  As well as running a fossil hunting activity and conducting four dinosaur workshops over the course of the conference, team members also provided the school children attending with information on Mary Anning.  By name dropping scientists, the children could make up a list of famous contributors to scientific endeavour.  A prize was awarded to the school which created the longest list.

Naturally, with a fossil hunting activity as part of our dinosaur workshop, Mary Anning was an easy choice for ourselves.

 The picture above is of the poster we put up on our fossil hunting workshop stand.  We put it in a prominent place so that all the children could easily spot it as they hunted for fossils on our artificial beach.  During the dinosaur workshop, which we especially created for this event, we made sure to mention the competition and Mary Anning so that the children could be encouraged to take part.

The dinosaur workshop that we had prepared for this conference involved looking at real dinosaur fossil bones, exploring how our bodies compare to those of dinosaurs and looking at some of the very latest research.  Teachers were also invited to break a few bones, nothing to worry about though, just a clever experiment that we thought up that helped the children learn what our bones (amphibian bones, reptile, bird and mammal bones) are composed of.  Collagen was indeed the word of the day and helped to link our dinosaur workshop together as well as tying it into important aspects of the Key Stage 2 science curriculum.

Celebrating Science with Blackpool School Children

Blackpool Celebrating Science Conference 2015

Another busy day yesterday as team members at Everything Dinosaur took part in the Blackpool Celebrating Science Conference (BCSC2015).  Schools from all over the Blackpool area attended the event which was held at Unity Academy, with the conference taking place in the Academy’s spacious hall and the various science activities organised in nearby classrooms.  Everything Dinosaur was located in Mr Goldie’s classroom, we are grateful to Mr Goldie and his class for letting us use their room for the four dinosaur themed workshops we conducted with Year 4 and Year 5 pupils over the morning.

“Tyrannosaurus Sue” took charge of our conference stand and organised a fossil hunting activity for the children.  She had a very busy day with lots and lots of enthusiastic young palaeontologists exploring the fossil trays looking for ammonites, belemnites, brachiopods, petrified wood and coral.

We posted up some pictures of the fossils the children could find, they were really impressed with the shark teeth and loved looking at their fossil discoveries with the large magnifying glasses we provided.   We also included lots of information about Mary Anning, as one of the competitions on the day for the children was to collect as many names of famous scientists as they could.

In the meantime, in the classroom we had been looking at animals with backbones and exploring the vertebrae of dinosaurs.  In the second part of the workshop, Everything Dinosaur explained some of the aspects relating to new research into the Dinosauria.  Our well received workshop involved “Jurassic World” and breaking some bones, the activities and experiments delighted teachers and children alike.   We were very busy with the workshops and did not have a lot of time to organise feedback from the eight schools we were scheduled to work with.  However, we did get two teachers to provide some feedback on the workshops that we delivered.  It seems we got 5 out of 5 stars for our workshop.  This feedback is extremely helpful as the short lesson we provided was one that we had developed especially for the conference.
