Dino Learning

We've been learning A LOT about dinosaurs.  I enjoy teaching this unit because I absolutely LOVED dinos growing up.  In first grade, I was sure I'd be a paleontologist one day!  Who wouldn't want to spend the day digging up dino bones?

Students have been listening to read alouds, exploring books, and writing dinosaur facts.  After we learn about each one we create a Dino Map.  Kids list important facts and then go to writing.

They each have a Dino Fact book where they have to write 3 new facts.  Here are a couple of examples.  More to come this week.

  1. My son adores all things dinosaurs. I had never done a Dino unit until this year because I'm now a Dino expert. Looks like fun!
