Dinosaur Unit Study

Let all the dino fun continue by creating a dinosaur unit study! We’ve got some great ideas to keep your kids busy, having fun, and learning. Choose your favorite ones below and you’ll be ready in an instant.

First, let’s begin with books. Reading aloud to children is a great way to help them develop a love of reading. It also helps them learn how to communicate better, focus more, and become more curious and imaginative.

Never Let A Dinosaur Scribble! – A little boy heard people say, “Never let a dinosaur scribble!” but he just couldn’t help himself. He gives his dinosaur a crayon and lets the dinosaur go. What will happen?! Kids will be waiting on pins and needles to see the ending.

How To Catch A Dinosaur – If your kids are into STEAM activities, they’ll love this book that has the same group of kids trying to create crazy contraptions to catch a dinosaur!

Tiny T. Rex And The Impossible Hug – Not only does this book have adorable illustrations, but it’s also a great book to help kids learn kindness!
