We return to our dinosaur days with Emanuel after a busy December with a rather interesting herbivore, the Apatosaurus who is often miscalled the Brontosaurus! Or as Emanuel called it, another long neck dinosaur. Which are his FAVOURITES! So of course there were links, videos and a colouring page. Let’s start with the video I cannot post in the blog itself. HERE is the link to the Discovery video on our dinosaur of the day. And below our I’m a Dinosaur video for you to watch right now.
Now for the links about our long necked dinosaur. And by long necked we mean potentially long enough to not be able to lift it up to eat of the tops of trees! First there is the Kids Dig Dinos site with their page HERE. Then Kidsdinos.com with their charts HERE. Thefreeresource.com has a lot of rather technical classifications HERE. EnchantedLearning has two pages of interest… the page HERE and the fact sheet HERE. And let’s not forget our colouring page HERE. Though it is a bit misleading as all the information we found stated that it is not believed that they would swim… so we imagine that these dinosaurs were just cooling off. There is also a terrific page HERE from Science Kids. And, finally, the technical Wikipedia page HERE.
We actually chose this dinosaur due to a random find at JoAnn’s of a boardbook. This late Jurassic period dinosaur certainly sparked that interest back in Emanuel! So I will continue the daily trend… hopefully our research will help others with their love of dinosaurs!
