80+ Fun Dinosaur Learning Ideas For Kids

In our Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum this month we have been learning all about Dinosaurs. Both of the younger boys have especially enjoyed the topic, and I have felt that Ethan could use some more challenging work in regards to our Mother Goose Time themes.

So today I am going to share with you some of the wonderful resources I have found while putting together some activities for both of the boys, but especially elementary levels to go along with our dinosaur unit.

Dinosaur Movies

Finding decent dinosaur movies for kids is quite a difficult task. Quite a few of the videos that I could find had quite a bit of dino violence. In my opinion this would be fine for older high school students and maybe even jr high school students.

For my elementary kids I needed to find clean and not dinos ripping each other apart. This task was near impossible, so there is 1 Disney movie that I found that is a clean educational movie for kids, the rest are all kids series that are about dinosaurs. Most of them teach many different dinosaur facts during the movie, but a couple are just fun shows. All of these are linked to the prime Instant Videos on Amazon.

Books for Learning More About Dinosaurs

The following books are for learning facts about dinosaurs, any of these books are perfect for a dinosaur unit.

Christian Dinosaur Books for Kids

There are many different dinosaur books out there for kids, finding books that are from a Christian perspective is even harder. The following are books that are taught from the Christian perspective and are a great resource for adding to your library.

  • This fossil dough from Nuttin’ But Preschool looks like a fun sensory medium to use, one we have not tried yet, but we will be making it for our sensory bin next week for Mother Goose Time Curriculum. Supposedly it makes great imprints in the dough as well.
