D is for Dinosaur
A perfect activity for kindergarten-aged kids, as they color they can practice spelling and writing. Younger kids love learning about these prehistoric creatures!
On the first sheet, you can color in the words D is for Dinosaur along with ferns and a dinosaur's face! Then on the sheet below, little ones can color the image then write the word dinosaur on the lines!
This dinosaur is easy to recognize because of its armor and club tail. Ankylosaurus were herbivores that ate plants including ferns. On the coloring sheet below, you can color in the armed dinosaur along with the different plants.
Known for its long neck, the Apatosaurus ate only plants. Even though this dinosaur could reach tall trees, paleontologists believe it mostly ate low growing plants including horsetails.
On the coloring sheet below you can color in the Parasaurolophus along with the plants this dinosaur ate. This dinosaur had a large crest on top of its head and ate only plants including leaves and pine needles.
Equipped with three large horns and a large frill on the back of its skull, Triceratops is easy to identify. Paleontologists believe that this large dinosaur was a herbivore that ate plants including ferns and conifers.
When we think of dinosaurs, we often picture a gigantic T-Rex! This carnivore only ate meat and had very sharp teeth. On the coloring sheet below you can color in the Tyrannosaurus Rex along with bones and rocks.
The Spinosaurus was a huge dinosaur with a large sail on its back and a narrow snout. Spinosaurus was a carnivore that ate meat including fish and possibly other dinosaurs. Paleontologists think this dinosaur may have spent time in and around water including marshes.
Roaming around during the Late Jurassic Period, you can easily recognize Stegosaurus by the large plates on its back. It would be fun to color in each individual plate along with the ferns in the background.
Small compared to the other dinosaurs, Velociraptor was a little dinosaur, but a fierce predator! Velociraptor lived during the late Late Cretaceous Period and ate only meat. You can see the large curved claw on this dinosaur's hind leg on the coloring page below.
I personally researched each dinosaur featured on these printables. The goal was to include a realistic image of each dinosaur along with the food that made up its diet.
- Books including The Dinosaur Book and The Little Kids First Big Book of Dinosaurs are also wonderful resources for parents, teachers, and kids! Not only are they filled with fun facts, but large illustrations.
- The Natural History Museum has a lot of great information about each dinosaur on their website along with Britannica. You can read about dinosaurs in general or each individual species.
- Smithsonian also has information about how scientists predict what specific dinosaurs ate by looking at their teeth and other evidence.
Explore these large reptiles with these additional dinosaur activities. Perfect for kids in preschool, kindergarten, and elementary school.
