Digging for Dinos Exhibition – Ms. Trowbridge’s class

Bloggers:  Christian and Anahi

Some exciting things have happened over the last few weeks.

First, we worked hard finishing up our “Diggin for Dinos” project.

We worked on writing on claim paragraphs and providing evidence to prove which theory we believed killed the dinosaurs.

We practiced reading our paragraphs in groups.

Then, we had to get ready for our close-ups!  New Tech Network sent a film crew to video tape and interview our 2nd grade classrooms.  So cool!

We measured our partners with T-Rex teeth so see how many T-Rex teeth tall we were.  Then, we had to find things in the room that were shorter than and longer than a T-Rex tooth.  The film crew took lots of pictures and video.  We’re excited to see what they’re going to do with all of it!

We finished up our dinosaur project over the last couple of weeks and hosted an Exhibition to show parents, visitors, and other grade levels what we learned about dinosaurs.  We also learned a song and dance, “Dino Stomp” from Koo Koo Kanga Roo and did a flash mob during our Exhibition.  Click here to see the video on our YouTube channel.

Here are some pictures from our Exhibition.
