Notes to Teacher:
*Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs! is an exemplar text for 2nd and 3rd grade. While this lesson could easily be used for both grades, I have only included 3rd grade standards. If you would like to use this for 2nd grade, you may delete the standards listed.
*Please leave me some feedback! I’d love to hear what you think as I continue to create more of these!!
