We have also been doing a lot with our dinosaur unit. Look for some cool dinosaur fossils to be coming home with your kinder. They turned out so neat. Click here if you want the recipe for the salt-dough that we used to make our fossils.
Perhaps though, the highlight of the week was when we built and watched a "volcano" explode. I used sand, vinegar and baking soda. It was pretty exciting! We talked about how one theory that the dinosaurs are extinct is because a volcano erupted and sent dust and ash into the sky, which caused the sun to be blocked out. Kind of a hard concept to grasp, but watching a volcano erupt is super cool. I had as much fun if not more doing watching it explode!
