September Curriculum Unit:
Diggin’ in the Dirt

Archeology, Paleontology, & Fossils

Children have the innate ability to make digging in the dirt fun.  The Pre-Historic Times Topic Introduces children to Archeology, Paleontology, Dinosaurs, & Landforms.  Children will explore what it is like to be an archeologist by finding and digging up all sorts of treasures that are hiding in the dirt such as, artifacts, fossils, gems, and dinosaur bones. We will also learn what it is like to be a paleontologist as we find, study, and classify dinosaurs and dinosaur bones. During the last weeks, children will be exposed to some of the greatest man-made and natural made landforms.  Come Travel into the Pre-Historic Times with us as we use our imagination to undercover the past.

Composer of the Month: Sergei Prokofiev
