Dinosaur Interaction

In this activity, learners explore why animals, specifically dinosaurs, live in families. Learners examine Dinosphere scenes (drawing of dinosaurs in groups) and sort the scenes by reasons the animals are living in groups. Then, learners glue together geometric shapes to create dinosaurs interacting in groups and families. This activity is featured on page 26 of the "Dinosphere" unit of study for K-2 learners.
