In school, we write a report with the same title: "If I was a Dinosaur." In the report, we consider what we might eat. Herbivore, carnivore, or hey it's 2012...maybe an omnivore! Based on what we eat, we also consider who we might be friends with and who our enemies might be. Then, we try to imagine what we might have spent our days doing. This is a great way to get in some creative, imaginative, personal narrative writing that requires some background knowledge and general reasoning. The pics below are projects created by students I've had in the last 2 years. I'd love to put up pics of the ones hanging now, but my memory card is full! Oh NO!!! I gotta clear some of those pics off or buy a new one, oy!
Inspired by the triceratops!
Check out the scales on this one. Clever!
Incredible design and thought here! This student realized that alligators and dinos could
be closely related, and voila!
The Nikes always make me smile. :)
Ugg boots above, don't ya love? Haha!
This kiddo refused to think that she would wear only her natural born skin, so she added clothes. :)
Here's to a happy Saturday and an even better Sunday! :)
