Make a dinosaur out of chicken bones
Make Your Own Dinosaur Out Of Chicken Bones
by Chris McGowan
Birds evolved from dinosaurs. With this premise in mind, it's very appropriate that chicken bones are used to make an apatosaurus skeleton. It'll take lots of patience and an abundance of pre-planning, but it's a great way to learn about dinosaur anatomy and other bird facts. Boiling, cutting, and wire bending is involved, making this a mandatory team activity for adults and children. Prior model-making experience would be an asset.
Includes recipes so chicken meat will not be wasted!
N.B. Not being good with her hands, this reader did not attempt to make a dinosaur skeleton. Besides, being single, having to purchase three whole chickens is rather daunting.
