We started our adventure with these books about a boy named George and his dragon: The Egg, The Great Dragon Rescue and The Dragon Snatcher by M.P. Robertson.
The week was filled with one dragon adventure right after another...
We followed dragon footprints to a dragon’s lair. The dragons who lived there were friendly and allowed us to"hang out" with them.
Our sensory bins were the dragons’ nesting grounds. We had dragon eggs which were hatching as we explored.
"Goin' on a Dragon Hunt" was a favorite activity of the week.
Goin' on a dragon hunt
Gonna catch a big one
I'm not afraid,
'Cause I am a mighty dragon hunter...
We went through the grass, sticks, mud, swam through a lake, climbed a mountain and went into the dragon cave.
When we returned home, we made maps to document our adventure.
"Chase the Dragon's Tail" was a fun game we played. Each of us was given a "dragon's tail". We took off for a walk (more like a run, actually:) and did our best to keep our tails entact.
We stopped often to
We couldn't read The Popcorn Dragon
without having some popcorn for snack! We didn't have a dragon's hot breath to pop it, so it had to be popped in the microwave. Oh well... it tasted really good anyway. We love popcorn!
We headed out on one more dragon adventure and when we got to a cave, we discovered a fire-breathing dragon... Oh No!
I'm being swallowed by a fire-breathing dragon!
Dragons are beautiful, mystical creatures. We had dragon shapes on which to add scales with bleeding tissue paper. When we pulled away the tissue paper, we were surprised to see the designs that were made. Each dragon was unique.
We read There's No Such Thing as a Dragon,
and Custard the Dragon,
and it made us wonder... but, after our adventures this week, we know that dragons really do exist, at least in our imaginations.
