Everything Dinosaur Supporting Teachers and Home Educators
For the staff at Everything Dinosaur, the interests of our customers, our team members and our communities are at the very heart of all that we do. At this particularly challenging time with the continuing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we want to do our best to help all those people having to teach children either at home or in school.
We want to let you know that you remain our top priority and we are doing all we can to assist schools, parents, guardians, nurseries and home educators.
To date, Everything Dinosaur has provided hundreds of free downloads of teaching materials and other resources.
Take for example, this free junior word search and crossword that we have been sending out. Aimed at young children with a fascination for dinosaurs, our word search contains seven words associated with dinosaurs and prehistoric animals, can you find them all?

The Benefits of Word Games
Word games such as word search puzzles and crosswords have many benefits. Firstly, they assist with the development of pattern recognition, a key cognitive function in humans. For young dinosaur fans, our word search also improves spelling, assists in vocabulary development and above all, it is fun.
The word search puzzles (and the answers), can be requested by simply emailing Everything Dinosaur: Email Everything Dinosaur.
A spokesperson for the UK-based company commented:
“Over the last few weeks, we have all been working very hard to support teachers and home educators. With many children now at home and unable to go to school, we have been providing lots of helpful teaching resources and other learning materials to help assist with home schooling.”
An Extension Idea
How about creating your own wordsearch? It could be about dinosaurs or any other subject that you wish. If you are learning about the Romans, why not try creating a Roman-themed word search that you can try out on a family member. Perhaps, you could record the time it takes for each person to complete the challenge and create a chart to display the results.
