The following pages have diagrams and instructions for three types of dinosaur models. The first is a paper cutout model for each of the dinosaurs shown here in relative size. Next are patterns to create life-size drawings of the same dinosaurs, followed by instructions for full-size stencils to make tracks for the dinosaurs.
