A Dinorama (Dinosaur Diorama)




Last week I shared that we would be working on this creation based unit study on dinosaurs. To go with the lessons, today's project was to make a dinosaur diorama. We used an empty diaper box and the boys covered the bottom with green construction paper and the back with blue (they didn't think anything needed to go on the sides.) Trees were also constructed and taped to the back. After I took the picture Anthony added some clouds and drew God sitting on one of them (isn't he cute.) The boys made a volcano, a pond, and some nests with eggs out of modeling clay. The dinosaurs I printed off of this website. After it was done Christian and Anthony had a lot of fun playing with the dinosaurs in the diorama. Tomorrow we will be making fossil prints and later in the week dinosaur eggs.
