Field trip day to our local museum.
We are fortunate to have fossils at our museum.
I thought we had dinosaurs but learned today that
the Elasmosaur that was discovered locally is not a dinosaur
but a marine reptile.
There are great exhibits of other dinosaur fossils at our museum
and we had fun exploring them all.
Before we went I created a booklet of items to be searched out.
Plus a little magnifying glass (a borrowed idea from a colleague - thanks Colleen).
The booklet gave the children a focus and
helped them looked more closely at each item in the displays.
We finished with a snack and story.
My voice is still just a bit more than a whisper
so one of the dad's volunteered to read the story.
It was great!I love how he emphasized certain sounds.
Pete the Cat also came to enjoy the museum and here are a few of his favourite displays.
A dino smaller than himself.
A sea turtle to ride on.
But his favourite was this BIG fish, mmmmm!
