Monday's Lesson Plan
245 million years ago, dinosaurs walked the earth. Our world was very different back then. All of the lands of the world were one big continent. Most of the plants were evergreens, so there weren't any flowers. There weren't any birds yet. And there weren't any mammals. Probably the most important difference, is that there were no people. Did you know that nobody has ever seen a dinosaur?
Tuesday's Lesson Plan
Back in the prehistoric times, there were no people. There were dinosaurs, bugs, and reptiles, and then later, birds and mammals started to develop. But people weren't until much, much later. The amazing thing is, with no people, there was no language. There were no stories, no songs, and no one to tell anything to. Can you imagine a world so quiet?
Wednesday's Lesson Plan
Dinosaurs are part of the earth's history. Scientists study fossil remains to learn not only about dinosaurs, but also about the earth itself.
Thursday's Lesson Plan
The surface of our Earth has changed through the years, but its layers have stayed the same. The Earth has 4 layers, the inner core, outer core, mantle and crust. The children can begin learning about our Earth as they learn more about the dinosaurs that once lived on it.
Friday's Lesson Plan
Paleontologists are the scientists that specialize in discovering fossils. They spend a lot of their time carefully digging to find fossils. If they are not careful they will miss or destroy fossils.
