Pangea Day 1

This week we hopped into a time machine and ended up on Pangea, in the time of the dinosaurs.  This is one of my favorite topics, because when I was little, I wanted to be a paleontologist.  Eva also loves dinos, so I know this will be a fun week!  Over the weekend, we finished our globe and played some dinosaur memory.  We also went to the BEA expo, which basically showcases what Bern has to offer.  I will make a post on that as well.  For today, we made a graph to compare how tall different dinosaurs are, we read about dinosaurs, and completed some more crafts.  The big project of the day was a dinosaur excavation project, where Eva spent HOURS without complaint digging out some dinosaur bones and then building a stegosaurus skeleton.  She was so focused!  A future  paleontologist perhaps?
Ready for a walk!  Already getting too big for my newborn clothes!

I still live with my parents!  Still love this shirt we got from our friends Steph and John
I found this cool dino excavation kit at the store

Eva worked on this project for hours!
Our first glimpse at some bones!  Eva was so excited!

Eva matched the dino to her information cards, and discovered she found a stegosaurus
