Wednesday was Dinosaur Day for Mrs. Rita McNutt’s first graders at Immaculate Conception School.  It was a day full of hands on learning about the prehistoric beasts of the past.  The children visited several stations that allowed them to explore, experience, and create.

of his cookie.

There was a clay station that allowed the students to make fossils with plastic dinosaurs.  The class ate like dinosaurs as they enjoyed beef jerky, broccoli, cauliflower, and celery stalks and peanut butter.  Each young paleontologist was given a chocolate chip cookie, a toothpick, and a small paint brush to carefully remove “fossils” or chocolate chips from the cookie- a tedious and precise process. The students each were given dinosaur activity books that incorporated many areas of learning, such as math, spelling, reading, and writing, with the dinosaur theme. At the conclusion of the day,  Mr. Gregory Fox entertained the class with song.
