Build a Dinosaur: A Dinosaurs! Activity
Students get acquainted with dinosaur anatomy while assembling dinosaurs from parts that scientists have found on a virtual “dig.”
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2
As part of Scholastic’s Dinosaurs! online learning activity, students can familiarize themselves with dinosaur anatomy by taking part in an interactive dinosaur-assembly activity.
With Build a Dinosaur (grades K–2), students learn dinosaur facts and create six different types of dinosaurs from their component parts: head, body, tail, and legs. They can also create an imaginary dinosaur of their own.
While participating in Build a Dinosaur!, students will:
- Use technology to gain a basic understanding of dinosaur characteristics
- Understand how the study of dinosaurs informs scientific knowledge
- Improve content-area reading skills, such as reading for detail
