  • What do you know about hockey?  (Allow the students to answer.)



  • Hockey is a sport that is played by people on two teams.  Both teams are trying to score points by getting a hockey puck into a net.  The teams do this while skating on ice.
  • Raise your hand if you have ever played or seen hockey. 
  • Hockey moves really quickly because the players are skating.  They pass the puck to their teammates on the ice using a long stick.
  • Because the puck moves really quickly on the ice, the players have to skate really quickly.
  • Hockey players have to wear a lot of pads, gloves and special skates.  The pads and gloves help to keep them safe and protected in case they fall.
  • Ice skates are sharp and could cut them if they were not wearing all of the protective gear. 
  • Ice hockey skates are different than skates that you probably wear if you go ice skating at a rink or on a pond.  Ice hockey skates are more like boots with a blade on them.  They are light weight and both ends of the blade are curved so that they can go really fast.
  • Ice hockey players are strong and fast.
  • Today, you are going to be listening to a book called Dino-Hockey.  It is a book about dinosaurs that play hockey.
  • Some of you may know the dinosaur sports books.  There are many books in which dinosaurs play sports such as football, soccer, baseball and many more.
  • After we listen to the book, I am going to give you a worksheet that has questions about Dino-Hockey. 
  • After you have finished doing the worksheet, we will talk about your answers.
  • Does anyone have any questions?



  • Who would like to share your answers?  (Allow the students to share.)
