DINOsaur!!!

Pete the Paleontologist popped up in our classroom today. We realized that he was missing all of his important Paleontologist tools! We watched a video called I'm a Paleontologist to help us learn what tools he needs. Then we added the tools that Pete needed to look for fossils and bones: a flashlight, a shovel, a pick axe, a notebook and a pencil, glasses, goggles, a brush, a magnifying glass, and a tool belt to hold his tools.


 
After we learned the dance, The Dinosaur Stomp.
