F is for Fossil (year 2, week 39)

We missed our dinosaur week when we moved this winter, so I thought we'd make it up this summer.  It was a really short week because of the holiday, but we plowed into it anyways.

When we go on our road trip, we're going to a "dinosaur museum" for Dragonfly's fifth birthday!  So, ,this week we read the book "Who Cleans the Dinosaur Bones?" which talks the different jobs at the museum. We also read "Digging Up Dinosaurs" about paleontology and pretended to be paleontologists digging for bones!

We watched quite a bit of Youtube videos about dinosaurs, fossils, and paleontology.  We also watched several "read-to-me" books on Youtube.  It was a nice, laid-back way to end a busy weekend.

- Berenstain Bears Dinosaur Dig
- Bones, Bones, Dinosaur Bones
