Educator Resources for Construct-a-Saurus
In this game, students will learn about the physiology of dinosaurs and facts about dinosaurs’ lifestyles. First, students will create their own dinosaur. In so doing, they will learn how real dinosaurs’ body parts affected their balance and mobility. Once they create a mobile dinosaur, players will be able to take the dino out into the wild and make choices, such as what it should it eat and how it should defend itself. If the student makes successful choices, his or her dinosaur will survive and complete its journey through the wilderness.
In this lesson plan which is adaptable for grades K-8, students use BrainPOP resources (including a free online science game) to help them explore dinosaurs and dinosaur adaptations. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
