The Dinovember activities resource is brimming with exciting resources to ignite curiosity and learning among elementary students. For the youngest learners in Pre-K-K, there are engaging Dinosaur Read-Aloud Lessons that introduce them to the world of dinosaurs through captivating stories. For some active fun, the dinosaur poem gets kids up, moving, and rhyming. The Dinosaur coloring sheets spark creativity and enhance fine motor skills as students complete speech bubbles with their own dinosaur tales.

Moving up to grades 1st-3rd, our Dino yoga cards allow students to build their own dinosaur-inspired yoga sequences, promoting physical activity and mindfulness. The Dino coding mats challenge young minds to cut and paste arrows to code a path for the dinosaurs. This introduces them to programming in an accessible way.

For 4th-6th graders, our Dinovember packet features Dino tongue twisters to encourage wordplay and boost language skills. The Dino guessing game can be played with the whole class, in small groups, or with partners, fostering collaboration and critical thinking. Each lesson plan also includes writing prompts, supporting a deeper exploration of the read-aloud material.
