Dinosaur fun

Dinosaur Palooza Day in Mrs. Chappell’s Kindergarten Class @ Fair Elementary!
Parents, Grandparents, and other family members joined in center activities to wrap up our Dinosaur Unit.

Center #1: They were paleontologists and dug for fossils using a cookie and toothpick. They wrote about what they found and what they discovered about having to dig up dinosaur bones.

Center #3: They measured the foot of a dinosaur with various objects-paper clip, ruler, and unifix cubes. They also measured the stride of a dinosaur (16 feet) with a ruler and then laid down to see how many adult and children bodies it took to measure the length of the stride.
