Fossil by Fossil: Comparing Dinosaur Bones
How are dinosaur bones similar to human bones? In this workshop, children will learn the bones in the human body and the bones in dinosaurs. They are—remarkably—very much the same, with minor variations. The topic will be taught through a variety of hands-on activities including a Simon Says game with bones, an activity involving putting together a disarticulated skeleton to form a dinosaur, a close look at some real animal fossils, and a reading of Fossil by Fossil: Comparing Dinosaur Bones.
