Dinosaur T-Shirts

Lesson #12205

Here’s a T-shirt that students will enjoy wearing while learning about dinosaurs.

Grade Level:
1-2, 3-5

Create dinosaur T-shirts for each student to wear as they study dinosaurs and their habitats. The students can choose a dinosaur that appeals to them the most.

Students are motivated to investigate the dinosaur on their T-shirt and share with the classroom what they have found out about their dinosaur. Wearing the T-shirt home facilitates a conversation between parents and students regarding facts they have learned about the dinosaur.
