Dinosaur Train
An Apatosaurus Adventure/Nature Art
An Apatosaurus Adventure The Pteranodon kids visit the Jurassic Time Period to meet Apollo Apatosaurus, a huge, long-necked, long-tailed dinosaur who likes adventure. Apollo loves to whip his long tail, and does so as he leads the kids on a pretend adventure to find a hard-to-reach tree with yummy, delicious leaves!Educational Objectives Animals employ a variety of methods to protect themselves. Scientists believe that Apatosaurus may have defended itself by rearing up on its hind legs, and by using its whip-like tail as a weapon. Nature Art Mrs. Pteranodon cleans out the clutter from the family nest and the kids are amazed at the pile of stuff - leaves, flower petals, pieces of wood, and shells. Tiny stops Mom from throwing out all the stuff, determined that she and Buddy, Tiny, and Don will find a use for it all. And, they do- the Pteranodon kids have fun making nature art on the beach using the items from nest!Educational Objectives This episode demonstrates how to make Nature Art (following in the footsteps of nature artists, Zach Pine and Andy Goldsworthy). We will teach kids about making art from items found in nature- from spherical orbs of sand to sand-designs filled in with seaweed to stacked towers of balanced rocks. The natural items to make art (leaves, branches, rocks, dirt) are all kid-friendly and generally readily available natural materials.
