Okay, let's get to the fun part now!
Welcome to Wonders of the Prehistoric World--an extension unit designed to compliment Wonders of the Animal Kingdom, our Year 3 Science Curriculum.
This curriculum includes 13 lessons, which could be covered over several months, several weeks, or several days, depending on how deep you'd like to dip into each subject. The parent guide includes book lists, video links, and activity options for each lesson. A student notebook and clickable links list is also included.
This is a science extension, designed to coordinate with the zoology curriculum for third grade. While it was designed with third-graders in mind, it can be used with grades 1 and up, just like all of our elementary science curriculum. You may need to adjust some lesson content for younger learners, or skip some of the more advanced books and videos, but that is not difficult to do.
Lessons (we call them "Wonders") include:
- Precambrian Life
- Cambrian and Ordovician Life
- Silurian and Devonian Life
- Carboniferous and Permian Life
- What is a Dinosaur?
- Triassic Life
- Jurassic Life
- Cretaceous Life
- Pterosaurs and Mesozoic Mammals
- The Marine World of the Mesozoic
- Paleogene and Neogene Life
- The Last Ice Age
- The Rise of Humankind
As always, we highly encourage you to follow rabbit trails, take lots of field trips, and linger longer when your child is highly engaged.
Take it to the Next Level: Our Profiles in Science Book Seed issue for Mary Anning and the Sea Dragon is an excellent compliment to this extension unit! You can see that listing in our store here: https://gum.co/KDlV
