Measuring Dinosaurs Activity

We looked up the length of several well-known dinosaurs, grabbed our plastic models and then went outside to see how long they really were. We chose
stegosaurus 30 feet
T-Rex 40 feet
apatosaurus 90 feet
We looked at how long one foot was (we hadn’t done measuring in feet before as we’ve used the metric system up until now) — and then measured out the dinosaurs’ lengths using a 20 foot piece of ribbon (though in the picture to the left, LD was using a one-foot piece to estimate where 30 feet was — he came very, very close!).

That’s a long way back to the tip of it’s tail (at the bottom of the driveway!)

    Love this one as well. We are always comparing the size of dinos to things for our littles, but this is even more hands-on and concrete.
