This is a great way to end off a dinosaur unit. Students get to create their own dinosaur based on what they have learned about different dinosaur characteristics.
They fill out a research organizer where they make up their own information about the dinosaur they created. They use the graphic organizer to write a short report on their new dinosaur. OR they can just write a creative story about their dinosaur.
Students use the blank dinosaur template and design the dinosaur with the material used to name it. They can cover it with cotton, glitter, etc. This makes for a great bulletin board display – attach the dinosaur picture above the report.
I've included regular and primary writing templates.
Some examples can be:
