Dinosaur Unit For Kids

Keep the kids learning and having fun by creating a dinosaur unit study for kids!

Read on below for some of our favorite ideas and pick the ones best suited for your children or students.

Dinosaur Children’s Books

First, we recommend starting with books. Reading aloud to your kids can help them develop new vocabulary, use their imagination, and discover new places and ideas!

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!
