Dinosaur Wall or Floor Murals

            Draw or paint a life-size dinosaur using the following patterns.  The patterns should be enlarged to the specified grid size.  There are a number of ways to enlarge your patterns.  Some of the patterns can be enlarged with just a photocopier or using an opaque projector.  If an opaque projector is not available, make a copy of the picture on transparency film using the copier and then project the image with a standard overhead projector.  You could also lay out the grid lines using blue chalk line (blue can be erased, red can not) or string and draw directly onto the wall, floor, or ground.

            For a large group project, each group member can be assigned an individual square of the grid to reproduce full size onto paper or fabric.  The squares can then be taped or sewn together into the full size dinosaur.
