A fun read with retro-feel illustrations that offers many impulses for young dinosaur experts’ explorations, from design and technologies to different species’ diets.
What noises do the children think dinosaurs made while eating? What noises do the children make? What noises do their pets make? What is it that causes different noises while eating? Is it the shape of the tongue, the size of the teeth, the texture of the food? It might be a fun experiment to find our which foods cannot be eaten quietly.
What do dinos eat? What do children eat? Is there a meal they would like to share with a T-Rex? They could look into herbivores, carnivores and omnivores. Do they know which categories contemporary animals belong to?
How would a dinosaur that has a big tail sit on a chair? How would it hold a fork or a cup in his big hands with its big claws? Would the children like to design some dinosaur furniture and cutlery?
With our book recommendations, we want to spark an interest in children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Most books go beyond the obvious STEM connections and can be a great starting point for exploring children’s questions and ideas further.
