Dinosaurs & what they eat

We started off our dinosaur week by going to our local museum that has a dinosaur exhibit with some friends.

Before we left my boys drew a dinosaur.
My preschooler’s 1st time drawing a dinosaur (he is turning more of a little artist each day!)
Dinosaur teeth (Herbivore & Carnivore)

This week we discussed quite a bit about Ominvores, Herbivores & Carnivores

I  took some of my sale ad’s cut out plants & meat, took some leaves from our tree in the backyard & glued the plants on 1 pc. of paper & labeled it Herbivore, meat for the Carnivore & the leaves & meat for the Omnivore. Then I gave my preschooler some dinosaur flash cards and had him match the dinosaur to what they ate.
Then we discussed dinosaur anatomy
We also made our own dinosaur teeth out of Play-Doh
Then we discussed some of the similarities of dinosaurs & other animals we say this week.
A Heron looks like a Brontosaurus because of the neck
Lizards, their long tails, reptile, etc.

Have a dino-riffic weekend!
