Class Experience

The main focus will be on allowing young dinosaur enthusiasts to share their love of dinosaurs, favorite facts, exciting resources, and prized dinosaur toys with fellow dino-loving friends.  The short lesson at the beginning will provide a framework for these discussions and will help the young scientist to build and develop observation, recreation, and communication skills.  The field guide will serve as a fun keepsake and reference for future dinosaur studies and reflection.
I'm so excited to share my love of ALL THINGS DINOSAUR 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 the monstrous reptiles of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods--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!  Best of all, your child will have the opportunity to share, share, share all of their favorite dinosaur facts and figures!
Weekly extension activities may be assigned, which will mostly be optional.
