Games help children learn about prehistoric times. Most children love looking at and discussing dinosaurs. Many state curricula require teachers to educate children about animals that are extinct. Through games, children learn the bone structure of dinosaurs, the job of paleontologists, and many other dinosaur characteristics. These games are great extensions to any dinosaur activity. They also make wonderful activities to play at dinosaur birthday parities.
Dinosaur Bone Hunt
An adult, teacher, or child hides pictures of dinosaur bones. The children hunt for the bones. As they find the bones, they place them in a designated area. Once all bones are found, the children work together to put the bones in order to recreate the dinosaur. This part of the game works similar to putting together a puzzle.
Who Has the Bone
Use a toy bone, such as the ones pet stores sell as dog toys, for this game. The children sit in a circle. The person chosen to be "it" covers his eyes. The other children pass the bone around. One child keeps and hides the bone in her hands or behind her back. When "it" opens his eyes, they call out, "Dino, Dino, who has your bone?" The child tries to guess who has the bone. If the child is right, the hider becomes "it."
Digging Up Bones
You need fake dinosaur bones for this game. You can use plastic bones or dog biscuit bones. Dog biscuits look more realistic when you spray paint them white. Place the bones in a box and cover them with sand. The children use shovels to dig for bones. The child who finds the most bones wins the game.
