Dinosaur Sock Puppet

In this activity about dinosaurs, learners first participate in a group discussion about where and when dinosaurs lived, how big they were, and who studies them and how. Then, learners use their imaginations to create dinosaur puppets with recycled art supplies and a sock, while considering what features their dinosaurs need. Learners make up stories to go along with their puppets and are encouraged to put on impromptu shows. A list of discussion questions is included in this resource to further the learning.
