Big Old Bones: A Dinosaur Tale

Have you checked this book out?  A first grade teacher showed me this book a few years ago and the activity she completes with it.  My students LOVE it every year.

After we learn what a paleontologist is, the tools they use, and how they do their job I read this book. I hide bones (paper pieces) around the room and have them go on a fossil hunt.  

Once they've all been found each student decorates a piece, just like the fabric in the book.

Working as a team, they have to fit the bones back together to create the dino.  This week they made T-Rex.

Next week, they'll try to put Triceratops together.
