Happy New Year to everyone! Our kids are back in school and we are ready for learning and fun. Our theme for January is Dinosaur Dig. This is a favorite for many of our children in Pre-K3 and Pre-K4. We will explore all about dinosaurs, fossils, volcanos and more. Did you know that the word dinosaur comes from the Greek language and means ‘terrible lizard’. The word was coined by English paleontologist Richard Owen in 1842 and was meant to refer to Dinosaurs impressive size rather than their scary appearance?
Here are a few other fun facts you can share with your littles ones about dinosaurs:
- Scientists now think that even large dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex may have had feathers!
- Crocodiles were around before the dinosaurs, and are still alive today.
- The smallest dinosaurs in size were the They were only 3 feet in size, with a weight of 5 pounds.
