Yellow Door Lets Investigate - Dinosaur Footprints

Beware – the dinosaurs are coming! Curious young explorers will love the Lets Investigate - Dinosaur Footprints set as they learn to identify and associate each animal to their paw print.

The latest edition to the Lets Investigate footprints range is guaranteed to excite children's curiosity and capture their imagination. Each stone in the Dinosaur Footprints set shows a dinosaur track on one side and its owner on the other. Perfect for encouraging early investigation skills as children examine, compare and sort the eight footprints: Apatosaurus, Deinonychus, Hypsilophodon, Iguanodon, Quetzalcoatlus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops and Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Prepare some dinosaur tracks on your outdoor setting in advance and take the stones on a group walk to compare with any animal tracks the children discover . Press the Lets Investigate - Dinosaur Footprints stones into the ground to check, then flip the stone over to identify what animal left the marks in the outdoor area of your setting.

When they find the animals, how will they sort them? Children will enjoy making crayon rubbings, impressions in play dough, footprint trails, and comparing the different shapes of the footprints and characteristics of the dinosaurs, discovering what else they know or can find out about each of them.

When the work is done, the children can give the footprints a good clean with soap and water before a new archaeological adventure.

The footprints are made from a unique stone mix and are robust enough to be used throughout an early years setting, both inside and outdoors.

The Lets Investigate - Dinosaur Footprints set is the perfect resource to introduce young adventurers to the wonders of beasts long gone, teaching them skills that were second nature to our ancestors.

What animal might the children find at the end: Apatosaurus, Deinonychus, Hypsilophodon, Iguanodon, Quetzalcoatlus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops or Tyrannosaurus Rex? This is just the beginning of their learning adventure.
