With Dinosaurs In Your Neighbourhood
dinosaurs would you be walking with?
child who gets into dinosaurs toys or dinosaur posters know the names of T-Rex,
Stegosaurus and Triceratops. However, every country has their own interesting
dinosaurs and megafauna that the children love to find out about.
I live in Australia I get my students to mind map an interesting Australian dinosaur.
On the mind map they outline such things as: the dinosaurs' name, size
and weight, where and when were the first fossils discovered, period they lived
in, how long ago they lived, diet, interesting features, what modern animals are
they related to, locomotion plus any other interesting facts and features. |
is an example of a mind map done on Steropodons.
- I find having the information presented as a mind map avoids straight 'copy
and pasting' and then you can demonstrate 'expanding notes out'.
