STEM Storytime – Dinosaurs
Join Let's Talk Science Outreach to read Ian Whybrow's book, "Sammy and the Dinosaurs" and complete a hands-on science activity about dinosaurs!
Students will learn about the different types of dinosaurs and the role of a paleontologist. Using everyday household items, students will then create two paper bag puppets (herbivore and carnivore) and use a toothpick and cookies with chocolate chips or raisins to dig for dinosaur bones.
For this activity, students will need:
-2 paper lunch bags
-crayons or markers
-some paper or card stock in colour or white (they will be used to cut out teeth to glue onto the paper bag puppets)
-glue stick or other glue (tape would work too)
-4 googly eyes (or they can draw eyes onto their puppets)
-1 cookie with chocolate chips or other bits of something in it like raisins
-1-2 toothpicks or something they can pick out the chocolate chips with
Note: Before completing this activity, ensure that you check about any student allergies. Ask students to be careful with the toothpicks as they are sharp on the ends.
Please join us for our weekly STEM Storytime series on Tuesdays at 1 p.m ET in English! If you cannot make it to a live session, feel free to register and you will be sent a link to the recording afterwards.
