Some kids love dinosaurs, so this diorama will be something they will enjoy. Our classes are only one hour long, so I have chosen to print dinosaur pictures to use with this project, but if you choose to have the kids draw the dinosaurs, here is a great website showing how to draw them. http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/how-to-draw-dinosaurs.htm . In the supply list I have included a sheet of images to use as I did. For diorama background ideas, go to http://www.prehistory.com/ and click on the different categories. For safety and also as a time saver cut the front panels from the Kleenex boxes before class. This project, “Dinosaur Diorama,” is in the 1st Grade Projects Gallery in the sidebar.
Happy New Year, and congratulations! I wanted to let you know that you made it onto our list of The Top 100 Kids' Craft Ideas of 2014.
