Dinosaurs of Long Ago
(make up movements to go along with the poem)
The dinosaurs lived long ago,
and walked like this, and that
Some were large
and some were small
Some liked water
and some just walked on land
Some had wings that flapped and flapped
Some had long necks that stretched and stretched
The meanest, rudest one of all was ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex
These were the dinosaurs of long ago
Goodness, gracious, where did they go?
