Featuring Dino Dan
One of my favorite parts of homeschooling is teaching my kids outside the box. We aren’t committed to the structure of 45 minute subjects and we get to add in all kinds of fun, interesting and hands on curriculum. Monday’s are our favorite learning days. I was inspired by the book Earn it, Learn it and we put our own spin on the entire concept. Monday afternoons are dedicated to “What do you want to be, when you grow up?” . Last week I received the new Dino Dan 2 pack kit of Dinosaurs and when I saw that the toys are designed by world renowned Italian paleontologist and geologist Dr. Stefano Piccini. I was intrigued to have a Paleontology day. My boys enjoy pretend play and love getting to be someone else for a few hours.
My huge Dinosaur fans loved that digging up dinosaur bones is an actual job. So naturally they were enthused to have a day dedicated to all things Dinosaurs. The educational line is made of museum quality replicas so teaching, learning and playing is a breeze. Head over to Dino Dan online and play games, dig up bones just like a Paleontologist does using their tools and get the facts in the Dino Lab. I highly reccomend the site for young and old my 11 year old and 3 year old enjoyed the site and it has a lot to offer. Keep an eye out for other activities we did, to correlate with “What Do You Want to be Monday?” coming to the blog next week.
