I personally do not think that learning about dinosaurs is important unless he wants to be a paleontologist. So, why am I including the history of dinosaurs into our science curriculum? My son thinks dinosaurs are cool! The information itself may not be useful, but learning to read and write about subjects that he likes makes learning fun!
We really like the book series ………..”What do dinosaurs…..” by Jane Tolen & Mark Teague. These books do not tell the history of dinosaurs but have great behavior lessons in them. These are also, great books for beginning readers.
