In Lesson 8 of our Apologia Exploring Creation with Zoology 1: Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, we learned about pterosaurs, Greek for "winged lizard."
I wanted to add a few pictures of her notebook elements before I posted about the supplemental stuff we did for this lesson. We LOVE this curriculum!
In our study of these fascinating creatures, I added in a fun book, The Usborne Big Book of Big Dinosaurs by Alex Frith.
They have a great illustration of the many types of these winged reptiles in this book!
For a fun craft, we attempted to make the clothespin pterosaur we saw at http://projectinfluenza.blogspot.com/2012/08/clothespin-pterosaur.html using a few clothespins and some hot glue. The instructions were vague on the site, but I just sat with my glue gun and stack of clothespins and followed each illustration on the screen until we managed to get it together. I think it turned out so cute!
