Dinosaur & Paleontology Curriculum with Gather Round & The Good And The Beautiful
Updated: Feb 3
We started this year with the most interesting topic for the kids to engage their excitement for a new school year. We collected items pertaining to Dinosaurs along with the curriculum from the Good and the Beautiful and Gather Round Homeschool. I included a lot of hands-on activities to keep them engaged.
This semester was anticipated to be difficult as we were also remodeling the kitchen at the same time. So my goal was to have a lot of hands-on activities with reading and audio learning. This was a perfect start!
We were not tied down to a desk or in a construction zone. We took the sensory activities to the park or to the backyard to complete the projects.
During our downtime, we interacted with the online portion available.
The Good and the Beautiful has videos available online along with the app from Gather Round with a lot of resources available for parents from parents. Both were extremely helpful in engaging the kids with learning about dinosaurs.
Here is a youtube video with all the resources we used and a sample of the kids utilizing the kits, puzzles, and activities. https://youtu.be/TMlR3qsUo0Y
