Kentucky Program of Studies: SC-P-STM-S-1 – Students will use senses to observe and describe properties of material objects (color, size, shape, texture, flexibility, magnetism)
One exhibit at Dinosaur World is the “touch and tell”. This is part of the
Prehistoric Museum. At this exhibit, students use their sense of touch only
to feel the shape of a small dinosaur. Then, using their sense of touch only, they must decide what dinosaur they just felt. The teacher can lead a discussion on the importance of the sense of touch. The point should also be made on how the senses compliment each other and how senses take over when one is absent. The teacher can ask the question, “Would a different guess have been made if another sense was used?”

We take pride in Dinosaur World of our educational value. Our field trips are core content related with supporting educational activities available. Below is an example of one of our educational activities and how it ties into core content. Contact us and we'll get you a copy of our educational enhancements for each location. We also have "A teacher's guide to Dinosaur World".
