Kindergarten artists use dinosaurs and prehistoric art during several projects throughout the year as their "Art from other times and places" focus. I saw this book by Bernard Most in our media center and I was intrigued by the cover illustration, and the story was funny and inventive. The kids enjoyed contrasting the modern setting with the natural dino habitat.
We worked on our drawing skills here, combining geometric shapes for the city setting and combining organic shapes for the dinos. We used the bubble cutting technique, cutting a large bubble around the dino first then making the bubble smaller and smaller without actually touching the line (which would pop the bubble). This way of cutting really helps young kids who tend to cut straight through lines and have the pieces fall apart. I think we only lost one wing the whole week!
