My Father's World - Dinosaurs

Catching up on our homeschool posts... Our dinosaur unit took up most of December since we had lots of breaks for cookie making, a ballet recital, card and ornament making, and more. Some of the fun things we did include: drawing dots on a big "D", drawing a dinosaur, writing a story, reading dinosaur poems, making dinosaur finger puppets, and more. One day we ate a dinosaur smile for snack (apples, peanut butter, and marshmallows). Lucy also enjoyed making dinosaurs from play-doh.

Books we read:

What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs? by John Morris and Ken Ham

Danny and the Dinosaur by Syd Hoff

Four and Twenty Dinosaurs by Bernard Most

Curious George and the Dinosaur by Margret and H. A. Rey

Lucy's favorite part: "My handwriting page."

What Lucy learned about dinosaurs: "That they're big. That the sound they make, growling."
