A few days ago, David reviewed our dinosaur/reptile study with Aidyn. Together they read one of Aidyn's favorite books, Ten Little Dinosaurs. They also interactively watched some dinosaur-themed videos and talked about prehistoric creatures.
Though we never devoted an entire unit to dinosaurs, Aidyn has a natural affinity for them. Come next year, he may have a month allotted just to that subject.
Within reptile month and throughout the year, Aidyn learned:
-several dinosaur names including, but not limited to, apatosaurus, tyrannosaurus rex, triceratops, teradactyl, and stegasaurus.
-about turtles and snakes.
-that dinosaurus no longer exist and why.
-that some dinosaurs left behind their bones and that's how we know they existed.
-that birds are the descendents of dinosaurs (Reggie the T-Rex!).
