PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Dinosaur Unit- Dinosaur Research Unit for Informational Text!

This unit is perfect for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying dinosaurs. Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. Then, students will be assigned a dinosaur and a partner to work with. Students will have a Dinosaur Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about dinosaurs and an assigned dinosaur species.

Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and salt dough fossils. For the salt dough fossils, students will shape the bones of their assigned dinosaur! Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the "Dinosaur Fair" where your students can show off their cool dinosaur fossils!

**UPDATE 7/29/15** Fonts have been embedded so you can fill in the forms using the same font! A blank editable journal page has been added for you to add your own questions as well!

You can also get this unit in the Science Research Unit Bundle! You will save 30% when you buy all 4 units together!
