Theme: Dinosaur Dig
Weeks: January 16 – 20 and January 23 – 27, 2023

During these two weeks we will explore the exciting world of dinosaurs…always a favorite topic in preschool! During group activities we will discover the meaning of the words extinct, fossil, prehistoric and paleontologist. The children will gain information about many different types of dinosaurs by participating in the following:

-making fossils in clay and completing dinosaur puzzles,
-conducting a volcano experiment at circle time,
-moving like dinosaurs as we sing Laurie Berkner’s- We are the Dinosaurs and
-creating a variety of dinosaurs which will be on display at the Art Showon April 1st.

The letter activities are N is for newspaper and O is for owl.
