07. Dinosaur Days: In the Beginning (cc)

"Recommended. Featuring prehistoric animals as a theme, viewers are also shown part of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History for background on dinosaurs. Before each craft is demonstrated step-by-step, a list of materials is given. Teachers, parents and group leaders will find this program very useful." -School Library Journal
Many of today's plants and animals had their beginnings in pre-historic times, when dinosaurs roamed the planet. Projects include: Pipe Cleaner Dinosaur - Twist your way to dinosaur models made from chenille. Wooly Mammoth - The modern day elephant is actually a descendant of the wooly mammoth. This furry creature looks cuter in miniature and is a lot less ferocious than his real-life counterpart. Fossil Necklace - Fossils are created when plants and animals die and leave their imprint on the ground, which then hardens into rock. Here we create a fossil from clay and use it to string an interesting necklace. Dinosaur Diorama - Brontosaurus, T-Rex, Triceratops - they're all here as a paper diorama. Dinosaur Soaps - A fun look at dinosaurs making decorative soaps. Hands-On Project 407 - Kids helping other kids through their crafts. 04/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
