Guide students through their study of dinosaurs with these articles, lesson plans, online learning activities, and writing assignments.
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
