Digging for fossils is so much fun! The children are enjoying learning about what different dinosaurs ate and how they moved and just how BIG they really were. In the photo collage above, Esme (center) is digging for a dinosaur fossil. She later discovered, with the help of her friends, that it was a stegosaurus skeleton! The bottom left photo shows Jack and Sam K using the dinosaurs to pretend play on the dinosaur habitat play mat. The bottom right photo shows Katy and Drew J taking turns to sort the dinosaurs by color. Drew K is making a "long neck dinosaur" by connecting Styrofoam balls together with toothpicks to form the dinosaur's long neck. And Emmet (top right) is a young paleontologist in the making searching for the upper left arm bone of the T-Rex skeleton.
I hope you are having as much fun as we are learning about dinosaurs this month!
Other topics woven into this month's theme are: the seven continents, fossils, birds and habitats.
