Throughout the month of our dinosaur-themed activities, we talked about what herbivores and carnivores were. We talked about what they were and the dinosaurs associated with them.
In addition to this, we talked about the different kinds of teeth and anatomy required for each particular diet and coupled that with new vocabulary (stegosaurus, brontosaurus, velicoraptor). Using dinosaurs and pictures of meat and plants, we sorted each dinosaur according to what we thought they ate, meat or plant.
Each student cheered on their friends, and everyone was given a chance to participate. This activity helped us integrate our discussion of the dinosaur diet, names of other carnivores and extended previously relayed information by discussing anatomy and eating characteristics.
