Twenty Young Paleontologists
Twenty young paleontologists taught their parents all about dinosaurs during Friday's Omega Dinosaur Presentation. The show included songs like "Dinosaurs Lived Long Ago" with special verses written by the boys, as well as recitation of the boys' favorite dinosaur facts.
These boys know a lot about the prehistoric animals; they have been learning about them this spring in an interdisciplinary unit that integrates art, music, science, and social studies. During their study, they visited the dinosaur exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, worked in groups, and explored the concepts of time periods and archaeology.
Congrats to Declan, Lucas, Wyatt, Richard, Hayden, Francis, Gates, Mack, John, Sanders, Aidan, Luis, Trevor, Charlie, Camden, Jasper, Camino, Hutch, Rohan and George for a great demonstration of their knowledge and expertise; and to teachers Ms. Cohen, Ms. Buss, and Music Director Mr. Moore.
