What is a Dinosaur?    Week 1, 6/23 - 6/27
Millions of years ago, long before there were any people, there were dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were reptiles and most hatched from eggs.

Mesozoic Era    Week 2, 6/30 - 7/03
The Mesozoic Era was the time from 248 million to 65 million years ago. The Mesozoic Era is divided into three periods, the Triassic, the Jurassic, and the Cretaceous.

Biggest, Fastest, Smallest   Week 3, 7/7 - 7/11
The biggest dinosaurs were gigantic, slow-moving and had a tiny head. The fastest dinosaurs were bird-like carnivores that ran as fast as an ostrich. The smallest dinosaurs were less than two feet long.

Plant or Meat Eater?    Week 4, 7/14 - 7/18
Most dinosaurs were plant-eaters (also called herbivores). Some dinosaurs were meat-eaters (also called carnivores).

Skeletons/Fossils    Week 5, 7/21 - 7/25
Dinosaur fossils have been found all over the world. When the skeleton is analyzed, scientists can discover the dinosaur’s way of life and death.

Paleontologists/Museums    Week 6, 7/28 - 8/1
Paleontologists are scientists that study dinosaurs’ fossil remains. When dinosaurs are displayed in museums, they are made to come to life in people’s imaginations.

Extinction    Week 7, 8/4 - 8/8
Dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago. No one knows why, but it could have been because of the environmental changes brought about by an asteroid hitting the earth, an enormous flood or perhaps a volcanic eruption.


Redbud's summer program is not run as a Montessori classroom, but the guiding principles of Maria Montessori's theories are in place. Encouragement in respect of others and yourself is supported as the daily guidelines we follow during the academic year are implemented.
