Animal Architecture Grades 3-5 with ArchForKids (Virtual)

July 16th: Dino Domains Grades 3-5 (Virtual)

Create an appropriate habitat for a dinosaur that roamed the Earth long ago--from a flying Pterodactyl, to the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex, to a giant Sauropod! Is your dinosaur herbaceous or carnivorous? Does it live in the plains, the water, the desert, or someplace else?

Materials Needed:

-Cardboard base (at least 14x14, can be cut from a mailing box)

-Construction and/or tissue paper especially blue, green, & brown

-Cardboard scraps

-Pipe cleaners

-Scissors, tape, & glue

-Optional: supplies you have at home to embellish your model: toothpicks, paper straws, twigs, pebbles, pompoms, dinosaur figurines


Have fun designing spaces for our animal friends using simple household supplies. Children will first explore how animals create their homes. Then we will investigate how humans create spaces for animals. Each week is a new, exciting activity. Please check the calendar description for materials/supplies you will need to have at home. Engaging and interactive instruction by ArchForKids, which provides hands-on, minds-on architecture projects for young people (
