Oh, my gosh Y'all! We have had so much fun learning about Dinosaurs!
The week before our unit started my dog found (wink, wink) this egg in my backyard.
We made inferences about what we thought was inside it based on it's appearance.
The kids noticed that, "it looked really old" and that it was "Huge".
We charted their guesses on the chart below. I told them that I had peeked inside the egg and that I already knew what was inside it. I gave them one clue at a time and we made the chart below.
WHEW! It's a good thing we haven't done our Oviparous Animals unit yet or I would be one sad teacher!
A horse? In an egg? Mercy! :)
These are a few random pictures from our unit.
I LOVE teaching my kids new words and I get so tickled when they come back the next day and tell me their parents had to Google it! :) We learned about pangea. Don't know what this is? Ask one of my Kindergarten Sweeties they can tell you all about it. They can also sing you the Seven Continents song and tell you the differences between Dino times and now. They are just too smart!
I love Debbie Miller. If you haven't read her book, Teaching With Intention
it is a must read!
Our Dinosaur Glyph
Our T-Rex bones that we put back together.
We will be real Paleontologists on Wednesday when we do our Dinosaur Dig!
More pictures to come! I'm working on my Dinosaur unit and all of the patterns and printables will be included. It won't be ready for another week or so.
But... my Farm unit is ready. Here's the link if you're interested.
P.S. If you purchased the unit before 6:00 tonight you need to go back to TPT and get the 10 new pages that I added it to it tonight. :)
