How exciting! In the news we’ve been hearing about the discovery of fossils of a new dinosaur species found in Argentina. Cadence’s mom sent Ms.J a CTV News clip which we read and watched in class this morning. The class discussed what we learned from the video and decided to give some ideas of names for this new dinosaur, and we also went outside to measure and see how big this beast really would’ve been! We know that dinosaurs are sometimes named according to the region in which they were found. Because these fossils were discovered in the Argentinian region of Patagonia, we had three student suggestions for a name: Patagoniasaurus, Patagonius, and Patagosaurus. Below are some photos of us watching the news segment in the classroom as well as the students stretching out between pylons to show the length (40 meters) and height (20 meters) of the dinosaur. It would’ve been HUGE!!! What a fun, interesting class!
