Find the Long-Lost Animals

The Concept: The children will learn about the role of a paleontologist, a scientist who studies fossils—the ancient remains of animals and plants. They will act as pretend paleontologists as they explore fossils with different plastic animals. The children will also sort by attributes and learn about characteristics of different types of dinosaurs. The follow-up activity provides opportunities to practice counting and learn the term in half.
