The Dinosaur Who Lived in my Backyard

In 2nd grade, we reinforce what we learned about foreground, middleground, and background with this dinosaur landscape. I like this project a lot because it really takes a lot of imagination :) We begin by reading "The Dinosaur Who Lived In My Backyard" by B.G. Hennessy. We then imagine what our backyard might have looked like during the time dinosaurs lived. We then imagined a dinosaur in our backyard and what it might have looked like.

Materials: 12x18 white paper, black permanent markers, watercolor paints, paint shirts, paint brushes.
Vocabulary: Dinosaurs, outline, pattern, foreground, middleground, background, landscape, size, shape.

Some of the second graders at Ball Elementary have been learning about dinosaurs in their classroom, this this project was a blast.
