CLARK – Second graders at Valley Road School in Clark have been learning about dinosaurs and numbers.
Students in Miss Emma’s second grade class in Valley Road School in Clark have been exploring dinosaurs and what the world was like 65 million years ago. Just like how some humans eat meat, while others do not eat meat, there were dinosaurs that ate meat and others that ate plants and vegetables. Taking a closer look at the dinosaurs’ characteristics helped the students sort between which dinosaurs were carnivores and which dinosaurs were herbivores. The students studied the pictures of a Velociraptor, Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Spinosaurus, and the Tyrannosaurus Rex and decided which ones were carnivores and which ones were herbivores based on their characteristics.

Students in Miss Emma’s second grade class at Valley Road School in Clark are working hard to count and add using base ten blocks to represent numbers. The students manipulated the blocks in different ways, creating unique drawings. Once their drawing was complete, the partners collaborated to find the value of the drawing. Each pair came up with their own creative drawing and shared it with the rest of the class. Pictured above are students Romeo Cifuentes- Beach and Hannah Malko
