How Big Were Dinosaurs?

Last week we read the book How Big Were Dinosaurs? by Lita Judge.

9781596437197

We talked about how  there are no longer any dinosaurs (extinction) and how  we know facts about dinosaurs (fossils) .  We talked about how some scientists believe that dinosaurs disappeared due to a drastic change in climate and their habitats.  These are all topics that they are studying in the classroom.  We discussed that all the information or nonfiction books about dinosaurs (subject) are together on in the library and have the same Call #.  Students were then given a card with the Call# of a habitat, in order to find and pick out a book to use for a habitat project that they will be working on in the classroom.  As usual, there were books on display in the library about the subjects we discussed (fossils, dinosaurs, habitats).  In addition, there was a dinosaur bookmark.
