9780471308126: Janice VanCleave's Dinosaurs for Every Kid: Easy Activities that Make Learning Science Fun

What color were dinosaurs?

Why did dinosaurs disappear from the earth?

How small was the smallest dinosaur?

What's a micropachycephalosaurus?

Now you can uncover answers to these and other fascinating questions about dinosaurs. Using a single paper towel, you can learn why dinosaur eggs were so small--even those hatched by the biggest "dinomoms." By making a simple jigsaw puzzle you will experience the excitement and challenge of piecing together dinosaur bones. Each low cost, fully illustrated activity--there are 20 altogether--comes with a clear purpose, a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and an easy to understand explanation. Every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home.

About the Author:

JANICE VANCLEAVE is a former school science teacher and a captivating presenter at museums, schools, and bookstores nationwide. She is the author of more than twenty other science books for children.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. The latest in the Science for Every Kid Series tackles a well-traveled but always appealing subject--dinosaurs. In 20 informative chapters with activities, VanCleave explores the known and unknown about dinosaurs, including how fossils are formed, the meanings of dinosaur names, theories about dinosaur skin, and how a dinosaur's weight is determined. Each chapter begins with an introductory "What You Need to Know," which provides an overview needed in order to understand the accompanying questions and experiments. The author does a fine job of explaining some complex subjects and theories, though the discussion of radioactive decay and half-life seems unnecessarily complicated for the intended audience. Many of the projects require adult supervision and say so. Children's keen interest in dinosaurs and these thought-provoking experiments are sure ingredients for science fun. Denia Hester
