Kids adore dinosaurs. Add some science inquiry to this favorite topic and imagine what life looked like millions of years ago.
Scientists have reconstructed dinosaurs' sizes and shapes from found bones, but they have no idea what they really looked like grazing in a field. What do you think their skin looked like? Were they colorful creatures?
In what ways does an animal's skin help it to survive? Why is an elephant's skin so tough? Why do leopards have spots? Why is snake skin so smooth?
Some dinosaurs needed to hide to escape their predators. Look at pictures of what scientists think the Earth looked like about 100 million years ago. What colors and textures would a dinosaur's skin need to blend into that landscape? To protect itself from harm?
When you have enough information to make a scientific guess, draw your ideas using Crayola® Washable Markers and Crayola Crayons.
Compare your dinosaur skin ideas to those of your friends.
