The Family STEAM Project for the month of January was to create a new dinosaur. Recently, the kindergartners shared their creative reptiles. I am impressed with the variety of materials used, including tin foil, Lego, egg cartons, wood, pipe cleaners, clay, and more! My favorite part of this project was the names that each student gave their dinosaur.
“Stripeasaurus” (if I remember correctly!)
During the presentations, students shared the process they used in creating their dinosaur, whether their new dino was a carnivore, herbivore, or omnivore, the most challenging part of the project, and any changes they would make to their dinos. After each student was done sharing, classmates were given the opportunity to ask a question or make a comment. These classroom presentations give students a perfect opportunity to practice their public speaking in a small, comfortable environment. They are also preparing students for our exciting musical play production in April!
