Dino Week

Whoo hoo!  We are having so much fun studying dinosaurs.  We've started out each morning by engaging in a little "Chit Chat".  I just love chit chatting with my class.  It gives my students an insight on what's to come and gets them excited to learn.
On Tuesday, we had a visitor come and bring real bones!  We enjoyed touching and learning about human bones and afterwards, we made comparisons.  Here is a Venn Diagram we filled out, comparing dinosaur bones to human bones. Students even watched a brain pop video on fossils. 
Afterwards, we made our own fossils and studied them like real palentologists do!
 Can't forget about a little art project.  We made our own dinosaurs and added spikes.
 More to come... ~Miss E
