As a child did you ever have an excitement with dinosaurs? I did. I loved the mystery behind exploring and maybe finding something new and exciting hiding in the dirt.
With my preschool classes in years past the dinosaur theme was always a long standing favorite with the children.
I would create the eggs and hide them in the yard or in the sensory table for the children to find. Once we found all the eggs, we would make predictions of what the egg might hold. The predictions were always interesting.
We would go to work on exploring what the egg held. In the past we have used sticks and brushes to free the dinosaurs. As a science experiment, I have also included vinegar for the children to witness first hand the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar.
Play and learning go hand in hand!
