If the Dinosaurs Came Back!

Kindergarten Art

In Art class, we read the story “If the Dinosaurs Came Back.” We were inspired to use squares and rectangles to draw a city scene with marker. Then we drew and cut shapes to create a dinosaur!


  1. Adorable. Simple, sweet and most importantly you got them cutting large shapes for those dinos instead of teeny ones {why do small people always cut and draw small??!!} I'm pinning this!

  4. This is an excellent lesson I think I will teach to my first graders. We have a focus on the Elements of Art for each trimester and each grade, first grade happens to be line and shape (reinforced here) in the first trimester then we work into form in which we are making clay dinosaurs. Thank you for the idea that will reinforce what they learned in first trimester and leading into the introduction of form.

  5. Education and Classes for kids requirements vary by the state, but typically includes the completion of education, Art Classes for kids, yoga or exercise classes and experience credit hours in early Childhood.

  8. These were painted on site. We found high places in Florence for amazing views. Having time to sit and paint was a great way to experience Italy and rejuvenate. It was a wonderful contrast to all of the crowded museums and mass transportation. .
