Wonder of the Day #1704

Are Dinosaurs Still Alive?


Kids love dinosaurs - always a requested daycare program

Big Idea

Extinction- Relative sizes of dinosaurs-Big and Little

Warm up rhyme

BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, turn around
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, touch the ground
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, reach up high
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, wink one eye
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, touch your nose
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, touch your toes
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, slap your knees
BIG Dino, LITTLE Dino, sit down please

These are two go-to books for Dino story times. I like Lila Prap's book because each page features a "wonder" fact and the illustrations are simple.

Dinosaurs by Lila Prap- includes comparisons of dinosaur sizes to cars, buses, buidings and relative to living animals like birds, giraffes, elephants, rhinoceroses, and crocodiles.


If the Dinosaurs Came Back by Bernard Most

If the Dinosaurs Came Back

The second book is silly, but a classic with a reproducible to use with the kids. Our library has it in big book format.


We have a craft template that allows the kids to make their own dinosaur T Rex.
