Let's dig into the past to learn about what fossils are, how they are formed, where you can find them, and some of the different kinds you can find. Young paleontologists + dinosaur lovers will experience observing real fossils together! #academic

Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 2
Through discussion, hands-on activities, gross motor activities, and short lessons, students will be exposed to STEAM concepts and practice important scientific and educational skills such as observation, communication, problem-solving, and recall.  They will be invited to explore and express their creativity through both open-ended and guided projects.
The students will be exposed to new vocabulary such as: trace fossil, preserved, petrified, evidence, dig site, timeline, geographic, extinction, Mesozoic, Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous, habitat, climate, prehistoric, fossils, paleontology, and more.
I'm so excited to share my love of dinosaurs, and embark on this exciting adventure with you!  I've been teaching STEAM through fun, engaging topics like these to preschool through middle school for 8 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, fossils, paleontologists and more--but we'll also get to use our imaginations and practice all kinds of important primary skills together!

Some projects may require cutting with scissors or other basic construction.
