FUN DINO CAMP IDEAS FOR SUMMER
SUMMER KIDS DINO CAMP
If your kids have even a remote interest in dinosaurs, they are going to love this week of dino summer camp! Little learners of all ages will have a blast playing and learning with all of these dinosaur theme science activities!
In this dino summer camp kids will learn all about fossils, volcanoes, paleontology and more through hands-on experiments and activities!
DINO ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS THIS SUMMER
Summer can be a busy time, so we didn’t add any projects that will take a ton of time or prep to make these activities possible. Most of these can be done quickly, with variations, reflection, and questions extending the activity as you have time to do so.
However, if you have the time, feel free to linger and enjoy the activities too!
In this Dino Summer Camp you will find experiments and activities on:
- Ice Discoveries
- and more!
DINOSAUR SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS FOR KIDS
While we may not have a time machine to take our kids to when dinosaurs lived, we can still have a hands-on learning experience about dinosaurs! Many of these experiments will cover how we study dinosaur remains, how dinosaurs thrived before they became extinct, and more!
You can set up your science experiments as an activity focusing on exploration and discovery. Make sure to ask kids questions at each step, discuss what is happening and talk about the science behind it.
Alternatively, you can introduce the scientific method, get kids to record their observations, and make conclusions. Read more about the scientific method for kids to help you get started.
