Dinosaurs... ROAR!!

Long time no post, right? Well if you're like me, it's very hard to stretch yourself in different directions. With my masters going on right now and teaching, things have been busy. I have also been crafting, which is a breath of fresh air after masters work and teaching work is over. I still love blogging my classroom happenings, but I always seem to make it my last priority. Today I am sharing with you what we have been doing the past week.

We started our unit on dinosaurs a couple of weeks ago and we have been going strong. Here are just a few things that we have been doing.

1. Fossil Dig
The students used cookies as rocks to dig out fossils.
2. Paleontologist
Then we used Diana Jump's dinosaur file to create paleontologists. Inside they wrote directions on how to dig for fossils.
3. Tyrannosaurus Rex
We used Diana Jump's file again to write about trex and complete an activity.
4. Triceratops
This activity turned out super cute. I wanted my students to create a triceratops, but I hadn't made a template for them. I went ahead and drew a template on the board and my students created their own. They turned out super cute and they all had their own personalities.
One of my favorites!!
5. Herbivores vs. Carnivores

A fun way to compare and contrast herbivores and carnivores.
