How do dinosaurs get named? Teach your students about etymology and spark their interest in dinosaurs with this creative project.
Allow your artistic and creative students to shine!
Students select three parts of dinosaur names without knowing their meaning, combine them to make a new dinosaur name and then sketch a fictitious dinosaur that matches the meaning of the name.
NO PREP! Simply show the PowerPoint instructions and give students paper and coloring pencils.
Great extra credit activity.
Great activity to turn into a competition.
Fabulous introduction to a more detailed dinosaur activity.
