Ready for even MORE awesome prehistoric earth science? From Ice Age megafauna to deep-sea monsters, we'll travel back in time to learn about weekly ancient animal fossils +dinos + add them to our Field Guides. Social skills, trivia + more!

Class experience

The main focus will be on allowing dinosaur and prehistoric animal enthusiasts to share their love of dinosaurs and other extinct creatures, 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 paleontologist 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. Games and sharing will foster friendship skills such as taking turns, asking related questions, good sportsmanship, and other positive interactions.
We're so excited to share my love of ALL THINGS DINOSAUR with you! The teachers in our cooperative been teaching STEAM topics like dinosaurs to preschool through middle school for up to 15 years in a variety of spaces such as: an independent STEAM education company, forest school, microschools, libraries, after school programs, online and more. W're 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 scientific method, math, comparing and contrasting, observation, movement and more as we build important communication and social skills in a safe, inclusive environment.  Best of all, your child will have the opportunity to share, share, share all of their favorite dinosaur facts and figures!

Other creative materials may occasionally be requested, such as dice, plastic building bricks, clay, playdough, or other building/making supplies.
Extension activities may require additional materials, but will mostly be easy-to-find, common household items, and are always optional.
Printed files will be sent each week for the learner to print and use in class.
We will discuss relevant topics such as carnivores as meat-eaters, extinction, volcanos that are part of the natural world but may be upsetting to some sensitive learners.  Please be assured that all content will be presented in a sensitive, age-appropriate manner.

Regarding supplies/activities:
Movement activities are basic in nature (animal moves, etc) but please be sure to provide adult supervision if you feel it is necessary.  Participation in movement activities is not required.  Please contact the teacher with any concerns.
All challenges will be age-appropriate in their nature and execution.
Allergy Note: Playdough may contain wheat, which could cause an allergic reaction if ingested in those sensitive to wheat gluten or with Celiac disease.  I am happy to provide a recipe for gluten-free playdough upon request, or suggest alternative supplies.
