Dinosaurs

Dinosaurs have always been of great interest with the children.  We decided to make our own dinosaur habitat.  The children and educator discussed what  the dinosaur land would look like and what living creatures needed to survive. We made trees from cardboard cylinders and  crepe paper, collected rocks and pebbles from our preschool garden, found some shells and made a pond from a plastic food container lined with blue cellophane.  The children worked together talking where to place the trees, rocks, shells and pond.  Conversations about which animals were meat eaters and which were plant eaters were animated. Finally the dinosaur land was finished.  “It looks just like Jurassic Park,” said William O.
