|SWBAT use resources of the Internet, cooperative learning, critical thinking, and problem solving skills to identify "dinosaur fossils."|
|SWBAT use the Internet to search for and then develop answers to dinosaur questions.|
|Given the proper materials, student will make an imprint
in plaster of paris.
Students will use observation skills to compare and contrast the imprint with a real fossil print.
|Students will construct a model of rock layers and infer the relative ages of the layers within the model. They will complete a KWL using Kidspiration to express what they have learned.|

-define a glacier.
-identify forces such as, wind, moving water, glaciers, earthquakes, floods, and people, that cause change on Earth
-present their presentation orally.

|SWBAT use Writer's Workshop to develop a journal of daily events of their favorite dinosaur to then share and compare with students from around the world.|
|SWBAT break apart dinosaur names to understand the actual meaning of the word and then use that knowledge to create a made-up dinosaur using KidPix.|
|SWBAT identify and classify the types of food eaten by dinosaurs using Kidspiration and the ways that these can be detected using the Enchanted Learning Website.|
|SWBAT use their background knowledge developed throughout the unit to identify the names of dinosaurs based on their descriptions and make basketball shots for each one known.|
