Dinosaurs are fascinating and exciting! Students will respond enthusiastically to the learning activities in this unit as well as personally connect to the writing activity, My Pet Dinosaur. Making a personal connection when studying a subject makes learning more powerful.
The lessons include a Venn diagram for comparing and contrasting, writing activities that sequence an event using temporal words and closure, creative writing prompts that allow for personal connection, reading a poem and digging deeper into its content by using definitions, rhymes, chunks, spelling, and contractions.
Also included is dinosaur math graphing, interpreting data, and summarizing the data.
The students will have fun making their own dinosaur puzzle and water color picture. The artwork can be directed or free expression.
A wonderful list of trade books to read to the class is also provided.
Five pages of Teaching Tips and answer pages are included.
