Yesterday we started our unit on dinosaurs. I introduced Pete the paleontologist. We learned that Paleontology is the study of the history of life.Paleontologists use fossils to try to figure out three main things about fossils: Identity and origin of the fossil, the fossil's environment, and what the fossil can tell us about the history of the earth.
After we watched some videos on the Smart Board and then brainstormed what tools Pete would need to help him find fossils.
Today we learned about carnivorous and herbivorous. We watched the story Dinosaur Cafe and sorted what a carnivorous and herbivorous would eat.
Tomorrow we will learn some fun facts about dinos!
