Unit 8's theme of Mercedes' My Father's World Kindergarten curriculum was Dinosaurs. Mercedes went to the library and found lots of books about dinosaurs.
We visited The Kansas Museum of Natural History and took a look at some real dinosaur bones.
Mercedes drew some dinosaurs.
I buried some clean, dry bones from chicken drums in our sandbox and let the girls play "paleontologist". This game was a huge hit. They literally buried and searched for "dinosaur bones" the entire morning. Break for nap/quiet time, and again the entire afternoon.
Mercedes traced her plastic dinosaur.
Painted the traced dinosaur.
And used his feet to create dinosaur footprints on her paper.
