Dinosaur Research Reports in 2nd Grade

The students learned the importance of finding dinosaur egg fossils. The class pretended to be paleontologists and used a chisel to excavate a baby dinosaur out of a rock egg fossil. Boy, it was hard work! The class had to use patience and perseverance just like a real paleontologist.
