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!

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.
