Third-grade students at Roosevelt had quite the treat this week as they embarked on a virtual field trip exploring and learning about "Sue," the T-Rex dinosaur. The Field Museum hosted the virtual excursion as students learned about the famous fossil's history and got to answer trivia questions. Plus, they got to see a sweet 3D model of the T-Rex!
Sue is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, T-Rex ever discovered. As the Roosevelt third graders learned about all things Sue, there were no shortages of "oohs and ahhs." Did you know that Sue is about 40 feet long, which is a little longer than an average school bus, and is about 15 feet tall?
It was a fun lesson! Thank you to the 3rd-grade teachers Kate Glassgow, Suzanne Kaplan, Sandra Pumo, Dana Bielenda, and Kayla Bennett and their classes for letting me join in.
