Open Door Weekly Theme – Prehistoric Animals

The weekly theme for October 16, 2017 is “Prehistoric Animals”. In this unit, the children will explore dinosaurs’ lives, habitats, and sizes. They will learn about the origin of the names of many dinosaurs as well as the incredible size compared to familiar examples. In addition, the children will learn history related to the dinosaurs’ lives and discovery based on the ancient theory of Pangea, a supercontinent. The children will illustrate their knowledge of facts they learn about dinosaurs by creating an original model of a dinosaur.
