Synopsis

Excavate! Dinosaurs Paper Toy Palaeontology by Jonathan Tennant, Vladimir Nikolov

Palaeontology is all about puzzle-solving, and putting two and two together: after all, dinosaur skeletons dont come out of the ground with an instruction manual! This fun papercraft title offers kids the chance to be palaeontologists themselves. 12 dinosaurs from across the Cretaceous, Jurassic, and Triassic eras are featured. Each dinosaur is introduced on an info page with a full colour illustration, where the anatomy of the dinosaur is discussed in detail. Facts about habitat and diet are also covered. The second part of the book contains the press-out pieces to construct the 12 dinosaurs skeletons. Bones are arranged into three era specific dig sites, but within those sites, the skeleton pieces are mixed up. The reader must use their new-found knowledge of dinosaur anatomy to figure out how to piece the paper skeletons back together - just like a real palaeontologist!
