This Science Guide for “Dinosaur Days”
“Dinosaur Days” is a fun science program designed just for young learners. It is meant for grades 2 to 6, but many of the resources are filled with wonder, allowing children as young as five to follow along and enjoy listening, learning, and participating in the activities!
The resources this guide coordinates allow students to spend a year exploring the Days of Creation, simple machines, dinosaurs, fossils, and studying these remains. Easy-to-complete activities are scheduled, but in addition, your student will work through the extensive “Dinosaur Days of Long Ago Notebook.” This fantastic resource teaches kids all about the Creation days, and then works through species of dinosaurs one by one, and takes kids inside the world of fossils and collecting specimens. They’ll enjoy a lot of nature journaling, just as Charlotte Mason advocated.
Plus, students will really enjoy the fun learning add-ons available in ebook: the Dino and Me Photo Shoot, the Dino Scenes and Book, the Dinosaur Mini-Poster Pack, and the Where They Walked Geo Pack. Students who love dinosaurs will have a lot of exciting hands-on things to do with this awesome program!
This Notebooking Resource
Kids will love this huge notebook, and so will you! The notebook begins by teaching through the Creation Days, then the features pages on the six simple machines. Each topic features more content, notebooking pages, and hands-on activities or experiments. The next sections work through different species of dinosaurs one by one. Along the way, students will read about dinosaurs and fossils as they complete pages on dinosaur profiles, their habits and hunting styles, unusual characteristics, hunting for fossils, and paleontology. Kids will just really enjoy this fantastic 200+ page notebook!
Using This Science Study
This study takes students inside topics that are not covered in our “Animals and Their Worlds” program, and as such, would make an excellent choice to use with another theme the year before or the year after completing “Animals and Their Worlds.”
Our science programs are designed to complement the comprehensive nature of our themed programs. This one can be completed in 2.5 to 5 hours per week. Many parents choose to do science on their “fifth” day that WinterPromise does not schedule themed program assignments.
This guide is non-consumable. The only consumable in the overall program is the “Dinosaur Days of Long Ago Notebook.”
