I got the idea for these "Dazzling Dino's" from Deep Space Sparkle. She's has so man great ideas!
First, we read a story about dinosaurs that I borrowed from our school library. I demonstrated how to draw two different type of dinosaurs- one standing up tall, and one on all fours. Students were encouraged to add their own details (spikes, wings, horns, spots, etc). We used oil pastels to add color to the dinosaurs, and chalk to create a sky and ground. Everything was outlines with a black oil pastel to give it that polished off look. Of course, the students knew more about dinosaures then I did... so they were very excited to share their knowledge! Enjoy their results below!
