T-Rex-ific STEM Activities!

When they aren't traveling the world looking for dinosaurs, James Bone, Pick, Shovel, and Diggy love doing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activities! Two of their favorite dinosaur STEM projects are creating dino tracks and frozen dino eggs, and they hope you'll also have a dino-mite time making them!


Ask a parent to help you with the activities below.


Dinosaur Tracks

What You'll Need:

  • 2 cans of Play-Doh

  • 2 plastic dinosaur toys

Directions:


1. Take a piece of Play-Doh and roll it into a ball between the palms of your hands. Next, flatten the ball into a disc.


2. Repeat Step 1 with the rest of the Play-Doh.



3. Press the dinosaur's feet firmly in the Play-Doh until it leaves an imprint. Lift the dinosaur's feet, and voila — you made dino tracks!



4. Repeat Step 3 until all the Play-Doh discs have dino tracks.



Frozen Dinosaur Eggs

What You'll Need:

  • 2 balloons

  • 2 small, plastic dinosaur toys

  • Water

  • A freezer

Directions:


1. Insert 1 dinosaur toy into 1 balloon.


2. Repeat Step 1 with the second dinosaur and balloon.



3. Fill each balloon with water until the balloon is the size of a baseball.



4. Knot the end of the balloon.



5. Place both balloons in the freezer, and leave them there overnight.


6. The following day, take the balloons out of the freezer, carefully cut the balloons, and peel the balloons off the ice. You now have your very own dino eggs!
