Westport The prehistoric adventures of the tykes from millions of years ago were revealed through the eyes of young authors at Westport Central School.
Lynn Bubbins second-grade class dedicated five weeks to learning about rare dinosaur species like the baryonyx, the spinosaurus, and the kentrasaurus among many others.
The students researched their species both inside and outside of the classroom. Using books from the library and the internet, the students were able to address questions about what the dinosaur ate, where they lived, how they lived and engaged with other dinosaurs. They also used their research to conclude whether or not dinosaurs were better left in the past.
“My second graders worked very hard during the past five weeks doing lots of research about their dinosaurs,” Bubbins said. “They researched using books and the internet, and some even did some independent research at home and brought it to school. The dinosaurs they have chosen to teach people about today are for the most part dinosaurs that are rare. I am so very proud of my students for authoring and illustrating their first dinosaur books.”
