CEHS Student Hosts Interactive Dino Dig at NJEA 2010 Conference  

Dino DigChristina Tenore, a senior majoring in Elementary and Special Education and active member of both the Student Education Association (SEA Pirates) and Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education (KDP), co-presented an interactive and inter-disciplinary lesson at the Annual Teacher’s Convention in Atlantic City (NJEA 2010). Along with her father, Frank Tenore, Christina created a lesson modeled to educate students about dinosaurs and their fossils through a fun, hands-on adventure. 

As the exercise began, Christina read a letter from Peter the Paleontologist who was requesting assistance with finding the fossils of a Triceratops.  Participants were then divided into four smaller groups, each of which “dug” for the fossils in a simulated grounds area of the room.  After all the fossils emerged, the groups worked together to reconstruct and build the 5-foot wooden model replica of the triceratops.  As an attendee of the presentation, I believe that both the group in attendance and their students would have a wonderful, educational experience with their own “Dino Dig” in the classroom.
