Dinosaurs

I have to tell y'all the funniest story.  I was reading the book Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs by Byron Barton and it starts out like, "A long time ago"...so I asked my kids what they thought that meant and a few said forever ago, like a thousand years, and one little girls says, "yeah, back in the 80's".  I had to laugh!  So precious....anywho...we learned all about dinosaurs this week...well actually last week, then the storms came and we were out three days so we finished up this week and "squeezed in" reptiles for two days.  Here are some of the things we did! 

We made a T-Rex foot then put all of our shoes in it...see what we found out below. 






Center games for the week







My sister did this super fun activity with her 2nd grades last year and I had to do it...We were "paleontologists" and practiced digging up dinosaur bones...we had to be very careful not to "break" them.  (We used chocolate chip cookies)

Here is the sheet I made to go with this activity

The Brontosaurus

Our T-Rex mouth with 40 teeth inside...then we counted how many teeth we had


Our dinosaur glyphs...


Here is a sample of our Stegosaurus with a pattern on his back...I let each child make up their own pattern and I asked them to be creative...not to do simply an AB pattern...I had some really really good ones...wish I could post all of them on here

  9. Wonderful things as usual! I just love your creativity. Please may I have a copy of this unit, too? Thanks for sharing all your things. I've always believed that is what sets teachers apart from other professions/people--we are always happy to share. It is about the kids--not us!

  12. Hi Julie!
    I was glad to see that you are "up and running "after the bad weather your state has experienced! I hope the area is doing better considering how terrible the storms were in the area! How are the kids in getting back to school? I hope you continue to have a good week and glad to find out that you and your family along with the school children are safe!
    Have a good week!!

  36. Julie,
    Since everyone else is asking ... I would love a copy of both or either. I hope to sit down this summer and set up my centers to match your idea of "same" activity different lerarning each week. Such a neat idea. I will share what I come up with and hopefully "give back".
    Also, I live just 10 minutes from a town, Ringold, Ga., who was also hit with the terrible storms. It is so heartbreaking to see our neighbors suffer like they are. So glad you,your family and kindergarten kiddies are ok.
    Thanks
    Donna
