Four-year-olds from Landmark Preschool’s Redding and Ridgefield campuses enjoyed seeing, touching and learning about dinosaurs during a presentation by Dinosaurs Rock.
The in-house field trip wrapped up a month of curriculum in the 4s that was themed around dinosaurs. In the classrooms, children made their own fossils, played matching games to help identify different species, and counted 17 triceratops on their Smart Boards to match the number of the week.
Technology class incorporated an archeological dig on the iMac computers to help with fine motor and mouse skills, and there were fossils and sand in the sensory tables for even more opportunities to be a junior paleontologist.
The Dinosaurs Rock program provided the perfect ending to one of Landmark’s most popular classroom themes. The ability to touch and see the genuine, life-size fossils helped the students realize the size and variety of prehistoric creatures that used to roam the earth.
Standing next to the nine-foot leg of an Ice Age mammoth, seeing actual dinosaur egg fossils and touching dinosaur footprints made quite an impression on these dinosaur fans.
And they all agree: Dinosaurs Rock!
