Dinosaur Day

Video Prospectus

 

We all made a model dinosaur in small groups. First, we investigated the properties of materials and made spiky, pointy, wavy shapes with all sort of junk! Then, we drew a dinosaur from observation, looking carefully at the shapes and sizes of each part. This helped us to start constructing our dinosaurs. We chose materials that matched the shape and size of each body part. Next, we used masking tape and sellotape to join each part. We had to work as a team to do this and we learned a lot about taking turns and helping each other. After that, we covered the dinosaur in papier mache which was very sticky. Finally, it was time to paint the dinosaur and add a lot of detail.
