Dinosaur graphic from Science Kids
We have a MAJOR dinosaur lover in this house!! Colin has been a complete and total dinosaur fan since he was about 1 1/2! We have studied them over and over and over. We have read just about every dinosaur book out there. We have TONS of toy dinosaurs strewn from end of the house to the other. We’ve put together wooden dino skeletons. You name it and we’ve probably done it. LOL BUT it’s been a little while since we’ve gotten into the nitty gritty of an actual dinosaur unit study and I figure its time has come.
If you’ve ever wondered what you get in a Magic School Bus Kit here’s a picture of the opened dinosaur kit.
You get everything but the book up in the top left corner.
Here are a couple more pictures of Cailey and Colin using their kit.
Gosh, they were SO TINY!!! We did this kit about 3 years ago!!! My goodness!!!
As always, I try to include resources for a variety of ages. All books can be found at your local library, on Amazon or Paperback Swap (you should really check out this link).
All printable resources are free unless marked with $$$.
Let me say that I am NOT affiliated in ANY way with ANY companies. I don’t get a dime for you clicking over to Amazon or Currclick or any other site. I am just trying to put together as many great resources as I can find to give you and me plenty of options.
I’ve actually been asked to a few paid posts but since they were for products that I have never used I refused. I want y’all to be able to trust my opinion on products.
One of our favorite series of dino books is written by Jane Yolen
We have quite a few of them.
There are THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of great dinosaur books. Explore your local library! They are sure to have a great selection!
