Hatching Baby Dinosaurs

Kindergarten spent this week in the art room learning about reptiles, specifically dinosaurs. They learned the difference between mammals and reptiles and will be exploring this further with Mrs. Strode.

Kindergarten practiced many skills this week including tracing, cutting, gluing and painting. They began their project by painting a sky background. They were given the option of painting a day sky or a night sky using three different colors. Students were shown how to blend colors together. Next they created a mid-ground. Trees, leaves and volcanoes were cut from construction paper and then glued on to the background. The next stage was for students to create the foreground. They had to paint and cut out their dinosaur egg and baby dinosaur. Template available from;  http://www.busybeekidscrafts.com/Hatching-Baby-Dinosaur.html. They were instructed to draw a zig zag line across their egg and cut their egg in two. They glued the bottom half to their background and placed the dinosaur inside the shell. The final part was for the students to create a nest from thin strips of construction paper. Great job Kindergarten. 🙂
