We had a "Dino-riffic" week.

.
Dinosaurs....Dinosaurs...everywhere! What a fun week we had. We were so lucky to get another great Science Alberta Crate called Jr. Palentologists. I called in some great parents and together we spent a whole afternooon learning about dinos. Watch the video below to see our activites and a huge thank you to those parents who gave time to us out of their very busy lives.
We capped out week off with another amazing experience. We actually video conferenced live with the Royal Tyrrell Museum. We interacted with a very friendly gal who taught us lots of things about dinos that we didn't know. We split into groups and played a game to try to get our dinos off the volcano before it exploded. The kids loved it and a big thanks to Ian's Mom for the leg work for this great activity.
