14 large game boards are themed around 14 different dinosaurs:

  • Tyrannosaurus
  • Brachiosaurus
  • Stegosaurus
  • Hadrosaurid
  • Triceratops
  • Ankylosaurus
  • Apatosaurus
  • Corythosaurus
  • Plateosaurus
  • Parasaurolophus
  • Edmontosaurus
  • Oviraptor
  • Velociraptor
  • Compsognathus

Children simply place their 10 Dino tokens on a vocabulary picture and roll the dice. The number indicates how many "descriptions" the child must say aloud about the image. For example, if a player chooses the square with the apple and lands on number three, a player would first say "apple" and then provide three characteristics of an apple, e.g. "It is red, has a stem and has a core". There are strategies that may assist players in providing answers too e.g.:

  • Function Cue: Ask the player to think about the function the object has. What do we use it for/When do we use it (or see it)?

  • Place Cue: Ask the student to think about where we might find the object. Is it found inside of outside/Which room of the house might we find it?

  • Appearance Cue: Ask the child to think about the most important characteristics of the physical appearance of the item pictured. What does it look like? What shape is it? How heavy is it? How big is it? What color is it (if that is important to the object, i.e. banana)?

  • Brainstorming: If the player is having difficulty thinking of the characteristics, make suggestions and brainstorm with the player such as talking about what a car does, when we ride in a car, who drives a car, what you wear in the car to be safe or naming different parts of a car like the trunk or engine etc. This strategy will help the player in future turns.

  • Silly Sentences: If the player is having difficulty identifying characteristics, play a silly game by saying. Is an apple something you drive in?

Play then passes to the next player who picks from the remaining open spaces available on the game board.

Games can be changed according to the ability level of the participants. There are also many variations on the theme and ways to use these resources which are described in the manual which also has an easy to use, alphabetical index of all of the words on each game board, plus a master index of all 1036 words.
