Roar!!!! Did you know that the Quetzalcoatlus Pterosaur Dinosaur had a wing span of around 10 meters; that’s 35 feet. This has been one of the favorite amongst the children of the flying dinosaurs that we have been exploring. This week we have discussed and explored the very interesting flight properties and wingspans of these remarkable creatures. We talked about comparing different wingspans of various dinosaurs and even birds and airplanes in today’s world! After discussing, the children said that the wings would prob be bigger then the Jasper Room and even bigger than the whole daycare. We decided to take this interest out of the Jasper Room and into the hallway. We measured a few dinosaurs, birds, and even a 737 plane. Check out the hallway to see what the children discovered. The children definitely know a lot about dinosaurs already so as teachers, we have been digging around to see how we can explore this interest even deeper and facilitate some emergent curriculum.
Now that we have discovered so much about Pterosaur Dinosaurs (flying) next week, we plan to explore more about Bi-pedal and Quardi-pedal dinosaurs; dinos that walk on two and four legs! Stay Tuned!
