Dinosaur Train at St. Mary's

For lab 4 at St. Mary's the theme was Dinosaur Train, based off of the PBS show "Dinosaur Train". The game that I choose to do was called Dino Dash Egg Tag. In this game on of the students were elected to be the T-Rex and all the rest were the plant eatters. The T-Rex had to run around and tag the plant eatters, and try to get all of them tagged. However while the T-Rex was trying to tag everybody there was a "magic dino egg" being thrown around to the plant eatters that had been tagged. Once a plant eatter caught the magic dino egg they were untagged, and could run around again. By the time I had gotten to my game we had lost some of the students, so there wasn't too many, however I still feel that they did enjoy it. This proves that even though you may not have very many students to work with you can still achieve your goal of teaching the activity by changing up what you are doing to that you keep the students attention.
