Kids love dinosaurs!! The older that they get, the more intrigued that they become with dinosaurs’ fierceness. Put this natural interest to work with this engaging research project … Battle of the Beasts.
A click on the picture below will transport you to The Library Patch’s blog. Read about how a group of fifth graders researched dinosaurs and then put their dinosaurs to an imaginary head-to-head battle.
Students need to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of their dinosaur and imagine how those same qualities would play out if their dinosaur battled another. Their research and battle concluded with a descriptive essay. My kids LOVED this project. How can any kid not love the gnashing of teeth and the flow of dinosaur blood??
