Today we took Math outside, b/c we needed the space. We took our tape measure and some chalk to find out exactly HOW BIG WAS A DINOSAUR?
We measured out 39ft the length of a T-Rex, and C and Z each stood at one end of the line, about as long as a bus.
Then we measured how many C’s that was, answer: 10.5
Then we measured even further to see how big a Supersaurus was – 140ft, and it took us 62 mommy steps from one side to the other…and he was not even the biggest dinosaur!
We had a lot of fun with this activity, and it really helped put into perspective just how big dinosaurs were.
