Ten years ago team members at Everything Dinosaur created a series of illustrations of prehistoric animals to help schoolchildren in a project. A total of twelve different drawings were produced illustrating life on Earth in prehistoric times. These drawings were then made into a calendar. The children could colour in or paint these illustrations to create their own unique prehistoric scene. The January 2014 artwork featured a Quetzalcoatlus drawing.

The Quetzalcoatlus Drawing

The huge Quetzalcoatlus is pictured flying over a dense conifer forest. Despite the emergence of angiosperms, conifers still made up a substantial proportion of the trees to be found on the landmass of Laramidia. These drawings were created to help the children with their Key Stage 2 term topic. The term topic focused on dinosaurs and fossils, however, giant pterosaurs featured too. The scheme of work also involved looking at the career of a famous palaeontologist and introduced the children to the work of Mary Anning.

The model (above) is a Quetzalcoatlus figure from the Wild Safari Prehistoric World range. It has been praised by collectors for providing an excellent representation of an azhdarchid pterosaur.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur recalled the time and effort that went into the term topic and praised the teaching team for constructing such an innovative scheme of work for the children.
