Dinosaur Train
Remember the Alamosaurus/Sunrise, Sunset
Remember the AlamosaurusThe Pteranodon kids and Dad get the idea to travel around on the Dinosaur Train and meet some of the biggest dinosaurs. They even sing a song, `The Biggest Dinosaurs', before meeting Allie Alamosaurus, an enormous, long-necked, plant eating sauropod who is very friendly. Allie explains that her huge, strong legs hardly bend at all, but she can still have fun playing games with the kids, and teaching them some of her favorites! Educational Objectives The huge Alamosaurus had vertical, column-like legs that they could hardly bend. The strong legs were necessary to support the massive bulk of Alamosaurus (similar to all other sauropods). Preschoolers will be encouraged to compare and contrast the size and locomotion of dinosaurs with animals alive today.Sunrise, Sunset Dad takes the Pteranodon kids on an overnight camping trip where they watch both a sunrise and sunset, learning that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The kids also find out more about nocturnal (night-active) animals, and diurnal (day-active) animals. Educational Objectives The Earth is a big ball spinning around the Sun (which also spins, though not as fast). At any given time, half our planet is hit by the sun's light; and the other half is covered in darkness. This episode also stresses that different kinds of animals are active during the day ("diurnal"), others are active at night ("nocturnal"), and others are most active during dawn and dusk ("crepuscular").
