Class Experience

Students will learn about the prehistoric era of dinosaurs and the awesome creatures that shared their world. Students will learn about what paleontologists do, and practice building their skills of observation as they look at pictures of fossils and scientific illustrations of the fascinating animals and insects of the Mesozoic Era.  Students will be able to identify and share what they know about these examples of prehistoric life, and will observe and recreate them in hands-on activities.  Students will learn and use new vocabulary words related to the topic as well as interesting new facts, and engage in guided discussion about their some of their favorite dinosaurs and their Mesozoic neighbors.
I'm so excited to share my love of dinosaurs with you!  I've been teaching STEAM topics like dinosaurs to preschool through middle school for 6 years through an independent STEAM education company, and I'm really looking forward to connecting with new students here on Outschool.  Not only will we be learning about dinosaurs, but we'll sneak in some colors, numbers and math, comparing and contrasting, observation, movement and more--all things that preK, kindergartners and 1st graders love to learn and practice!
Extension activities will be assigned on a weekly basis, but will be optional.  These assignments will be used as a way to reinforce lesson material and to allow students to explore the topics in greater detail based on their own interests.  Research, drawing, and fact-finding will be incorporated into these assignments, which will be shared and discussed at the beginning of the next class.
Students should provide their own paper, pencil, coloring supplies (crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc), playdough or sculpting clay, building blocks such as LEGO-style bricks, DUPLO-style bricks, or wooden blocks.  Other creative building blocks are also OK to substitute.  Dinosaur toys or models are helpful but not required.  
No formal assessment but teacher feedback is available upon request.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
