Have you seen the Dinosaurs in Their Time exhibit yet? It's very cool! The museum website has several time lapse videos that show the fossils in the process of being assembled.
You can also take your little bear to the second floor of the library, sneak into the 5th stack, and peek at the dinosaurs from the window seats there!

Giving a Valentine also fits in with the Interpersonal Key Learning Area identified by the State of Pennsylvania. The whole document is here.
