Letter of the week D-The Dino days of Summer

ASL letter D and some silly children
 Dinosaurs come out with your scales up!

I made these clay fossils the night before.It was a lot of fun but time consuming.I thought that they turned out pretty good.What I did was print out printable dino skeletons and then used those papers to know where to carve into the clay.Some of it I did more elaborate than others.

Burry fossils in the sand.Give soon to be paleontologists, brushes and let the dig begin!

Assemble the dinosaurs.We found a T-Rex tooth and we are missing the body of one.

We found the body to a Brachiosaurus.These are not to scale ha ha.

Just for fun here is a real casting of a raptor like claw so it is a replica.It is of a new discovery of a Mongolian dinosaur.It is in in the Dromaeosaur family, including Utahraptor,Velociraptor and Deinonychus.Below is a fossil of an Ammonite.Class:Cephelopod.Age:Devonian to Jurassic(417-144 million years ago.
