In this activity, learners explore the etymology of dinosaur names. Learners first discuss how dinosaurs are often named after a body part or behavior, where they were found, or a person (finder or famous). Learners also discuss Greek and Latin prefixes and suffixes that are commonly found in dinosaur names. Then, learners create a paper puzzle that generates new dinosaur names. This activity is featured on pp.20-27 (part of a lesson that begins on p.19) of the "Dinosphere" unit of study for grades 3-5.
