Product Description

Bring Dinosaurs back to life in your 4th or 5th grade class with a 21st Century Math Project! Using metric and customary units, students will measure bones, identify species and create labeled illustrations for a dinosaur encyclopedia!

In this product you will receive a 35 page PDF which includes: 3 assignments and 1 project.

-- In “What’s My Weight Again?”, students will use known weights and change the units to another within the same measurement system.

-- In “Long and the Short of It. students will be given fossil information and convert it to another measurement. In some cases, they must determine which dinosaur it belongs to.

-- In “Bone Wars”, student will have a discovery adventure! You can either “hide” the bones and have the students go around the room to “excavate” them or you can simply give each student group 6 random bones. The goal is that a group will collect 6 bones of the same dinosaur. You can have students trade bones, steal bones, buy bones, whatever you are comfortable with. There are 8 dinosaurs included, but you do not need to use all of them for the activity to work. When students collect the bones of their dinosaur they can verify with you that they have all six pieces by measuring them. They are labeled with letters, numbers or symbols and a key is provided.

-- In “Dinosaur Encyclopedia”, students will use convert between customary and metric units to prepare a dinosaur encyclopedia for publication. For each dinosaur, they must create a labeled page of information for it. There are six dinosaurs provided, but you do not necessarily need to use all of them. This can be done in small groups or individually.

You can download the preview to see pretty much everything!
