Dinosaur Day - Reggie Whitten

Today we’re time travelling and roaming with the dinosaurs! Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Reggie Whitten. His hometown is Seminole, Oklahoma. Whitten is a lawyer by trade and is a member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, something only the top 1% of state attorneys achieve. In addition to being a lawyer, Whitten is passionate about paleontology. Do you know what paleontology is the study of dinosaurs! Whitten worked with the Sam Noble Museum to create programs for students just like you to explore and study science in the outdoor world. You can learn more by reading Reggie Whitten’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

Did you know that Reggie Whitten visited one of our Free Family Programs? We loved that day! He taught us all about fossils and creatures that used to live on Earth. We can’t wait to be open again and have fun programs on site with you all!

Did you know Oklahoma Hall of Fame member Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, lives on a ranch? I wonder if dinosaurs ever roamed there!

Listen to it! Here are some fun Dino Songs that we can all learn! Do you think dinosaurs like to dance? We do! Here’s a fun dance playlist just for dinosaurs, and kids!
