Our friend Alex is a dinosaur fossil collector. He was kind to share with the class the fossils he has collected. The children had the opportunity to hold different fossils. Some of the fossils were real dinosaur teeth, part of a dinosaur rib and spine. The classroom favorite fossil was fossilize dinosaur poop! While we were examining the dinosaur fossils we were noticing what fossils looked the same or different. Following the CT ELDS of logic and reasoning to discover the attributes of similarities and differences. As well, following the CT ELDS in scientific inquiry the children were discovering how the Earth's effects how fossils were kept underground.
The children also played a shorting game where they had to place the dinosaur either under carnivorous or herbivores. These vocabulary words are hard to say however, we know the mean of these words. Some dinosaurs ate meat and others ate leaves. We also discovered that only a few dinosaurs ate both. They were called omnivorous.
