Year Long Dinosaur Unit

Teacher Tuesday

 

 

This year I am decorating my classroom in Dinosaurs.  One day a week (Fridays) we will be exploring one topic or Dinosaur.  This will last for the whole year.

Below I will share with you my Lesson Schedule, Dinosaur Journal Templates, Journal Answer Key as well as the activity and art craft that will go along with our study of fossils.

This will take you the the teachers pay teachers free download (where I found it)

 

To help with all we’re learning I also created documents labels and found photos of each dinosaur that can be printed out on card stock, laminated and displayed.

I hope you enjoy these.  I know it seems like a lot for Kindergarten but spaced out over the year I do think it will be enjoyable for the students and they will learn some about Dinosaurs.

I’m curious as to what you think and what changes you would make or activities you might add (I haven’t planned many activities related to the subject).

Comment and Let me know!

 

 

 

Science Experiments — Density

Density –>the mass of a substance per unit volume

 

Today since we couldn’t go to the Library we decided to do some science experiments and we focused on Density.  Our first experiment was with the density of liquids.

We mixed Syrup, Water, and Oil…

And then she shook it up

And waited for it to separate again….

Our next experiment in density was to identify what would sink and what would float

And then we explored to see what it would take to make an egg float.

We put a raw egg in a jar of water….

And then we waited for the salt to dissolve…

Finally, We made ooblec and explored the density of a Colloid

 

Colloid –> a substance that maintains properties of a solid and a liquid at the same time.

Ingredients

Corn Starch

Water

Food Coloring
