We were inspired to make our own felt dinosaurs by this idea from Crafty Kids at Home. We simply cut large dinosaur shapes, and added geometric pieces that the students could use to make them their own.
Circle Time Sort
Two of the vocabulary words that we learned during circle time were “Carnivore” and “Herbivore.” We talked about each term, and then sorted dinosaurs and a basket of food into 2 groups.
Excavating the dinosaurs
On the final two days of our dinosaur unit, we let the older pre-k students use screwdrivers and picks to try to dig out the dinosaur bones. They LOVED this!
