Therizinosaurus, meaning “Scythe Lizard” is a genus of dinosaur named for its gigantic hand claws. Today, we are going to make our own dinosaur tracks for us to eat!
As we get ready to move like our reptilian friends, let us pause to consider the weird and exceptional example of Spinosaurus. Talk about how different dinosaurs moved and use this game as a fun excuse to get ourselves moving!
The Allosaurus is Utah’s very own state fossil. This large carnivorous dinosaur lived during the Late Jurassic Period. The Allosaurus, which means “different lizard,” was discovered in 1877, and scientists were surprised by its hollow vertebrae.
Did you know there are over 700 different species of Dinosaurs? We are going to spend the whole week learning about dinosaurs through stories, songs, science projects and art activities!
We are excited to partner with KUED PBS Kids for this Sensory Inclusive Afternoon! They will be giving away a free book while also showing an episode of Dinosaur Train!
Therapoda, Sauropoda, Stegosauria oh my! Stomp into Discovery Gateway to learn more about dinosaurs!
