Line Time Lessons: We traveled back in time and discovered some fascinating things about certain dinosaurs. We learned that dinosaurs no longer exist and that they are extinct. We know dinosaurs exist because scientist found their bones or fossils. From these fossil we saw that some teeth were long and sharp to tear flesh from it’s prey which belonged to meat eaters or carnivores (T Rex). Some teeth were flat for grinding plants, leaves, and branches and belonged to plant eaters or herbivores (Brachiosauras).

Line Time Lesson: This week we creeped and crawled and learned about insects, arachnids, and invertebrates. We first looked at insects. The characteristics of an insect are they have three body parts, head, thorax, abdomen. The also have six legs and two antennae. We sang the song “Head, Thorax, Abdomen” to the tune of Head , Shoulders, Knees, and Toes. Some examples of insects were ants and crickets which can be found, enclosed not free, in the classroom. Also, the mantis, bees, butterflies, and dragonflies. Arachnids are eight legged creatures that have a head and a thorax. Some creatures that are arachnids are spiders (tarantula named Charlotte) that is in the classroom, scorpions, and the tick. Both creepy crawlers are invertebrates which means they do not have a backbone or a spine or a bony skeleton but actually have an exoskeleton. An exoskeleton is is the external skeleton that supports and protects an animal’s body. Other invertebrates are earthworms, jellyfish, and crawfish.
