We’ve said our goodbyes to our extensive Dinosaur studies and moved on to early mammals.

I’m reading from our Usborne History book, while Satori colors in pages out of this book, she LOVES doing this! I myself cannot believe how diverse these Dover Coloring books are, they have one (or more) for every niche topic we study!

Then of course Mom has to buy a few animals to role-play with as we study them. Here we have the obvious Wooly Mammoth, an Amebelodon, and  Arsenotherium. We have a few more smaller prehistoric mammals out of a Prehistoric Creature Toob that I need to get out now.

And finally, to pull it all together, we’ve got all kinds of prehistoric mammal read-aloud books, and our favorite DVD series, Walking With… Tonight we will watch Walking With Beasts! I must admit, I got a bit bored with the dinos, and I’m really looking forward to watching this.

A very rare rainy weekend for us in Colorado. We had the pleasure of my parents visiting yesterday and today David got to stay home and we all relaxed. I spent much time catching up on Facebook, something I’ve never really got into, this blog is time-consuming enough! Really enjoyed catching up with my sister, high school friends, and other friends I’ve lost touch with over the years. I snuck down to Boulder for a few hours to catch a movie, but then we hung out together.

After grilling out our tofu dogs, we had a family coloring night – and since Satori and I are studying the pre-dinosaur period, we used this coloring book tonight. I simply find it fascinating how many niche coloring books there are out there! You saw our Galapagos book, now here’s “Before the Dinosaurs”, which is appropriate as we learn about the Ordovician through Permian periods the next few weeks. 🙂

With these awesome Prismacolor pencils, it was so easy to get detailed. Satori amazed me how careful and intricate she was carefully drawing.

Even David got into it, and he originally wanted to use clunky crayons!

At the end of the night, we had about a dozen new coloring pages to add to our Prehistory Binder. Satori loves it.

And to check up on our caterpillars, wow, they are getting HUGE! I think they’ll be ready to start their cocoons later this week.

Today we watched another Galapagos DVD (IMAX version), but it wasn’t as good as the one I mentioned a few days ago. Nonetheless, we are very familiar with the animals on Galapagos Islands by now and Satori has been fascinated with them. She’s spending all her time playing with her Galapagos Island Toob and coloring the pages of her Galapagos Islands coloring book. This is the first time we got an official coloring book and it has been an absolute hit!

Out of the coloring book, there were many animals that we hadn’t learned about in the DVDs, so at first, I just copied/printed out just a few animals.

Satori soon wanted more, and asked where’s the Hawk, where’s the Crab, etc… so I ended up printing many pages of the book. (I copied and printed the pages so she could color them again another day.)

She set her Galapagos Toob animals down so she knew how to color them. With our 72-set of Prismacolor pencils, there was nothing stopping her drawing them just the way she wanted!

Each page describes a bit about the animal you’re coloring.

We have been compiling a binder to store all our prehistory coloring pages and such, so all Satori’s pages went into her binder and she is so proud of her new “Prehistory book”.
