How Outschool Works
There are no open spots for this class.
You can request another time or scroll down to find more classes like this.
First, we will read an informational children’s book about dinosaur fossils, bones and teeth. The book is called “Digging Up Dinosaurs” by Aliki. Then, we will work together to create different replicas of dinosaur bones, eggs, fossils and teeth out of salt dough. We will make the salt dough ourselves with 2 “household materials” as the main ingredients. Lastly, a parent or guardian will put them into the oven to “cook” (i.e. harden) for a few hours at a low temperature.
Here’s something you can do to “extend” our activity (once your bones/fossils/eggs/teeth have been given enough time to “dry out”) = Create a sensory bin by adding your new bones, fossils, eggs and teeth to a container of sand or dirt. Your can use “fossil brushes” (paint brushes) and magnifying glasses to examine your bones/teeth/eggs/fossils more closely.
I will supply the book we’ll be reading during the class. I will also have all of the ingredients that are needed to make the salt dough so I can show them how to do the activity step by step. Here is a list of all the supplies that the kids will need for our project: 1) 2 baking sheets 2) bowl 3) salt 4) vegetable oil 5) flour 6) toy dinosaurs, leaves or plastic animals to create prints/stamps for fossils (optional) 7) measuring cups 8) measuring spoons 9) cooking spoon 10) water 11) a sheet of paper and a marker
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental supervision is required when handling the stove. In case of food allergies or sensitivities, we will use salt, flour and vegetable oil to make the salt dough.
