Where In the World Were the Dinosaurs?

We are continuing to work on our dinosaur study and this week we have twelve dinosaurs that we are learning all about. Yesterday, Miss M worked on matching the dinosaur model and skeleton to the matching information cards (printed from Montessori Print Shop.) There were not cards for all of our dinosaurs we are studying, so we have to make up some of our own as well.

Once that was done, we talked about where the fossils for each dinosaur were found. Hugg-A-Planet came in handy for this, and Miss M placed the models on the appropriate parts of the world as we learned about each.

She discovered that Triceratops, Parasaurolophus, and Corythosaurus all lived in the same area of the world, all ate plants, and were all about the same size, so they MUST have been friends!

Her favorite dinosaur so far - the Seismosaurus.  After all, who doesn't love a 140 foot dinosaur who weighed as much as 10 elephants and could shake the earth when he walked!
