Includes a fun differentiated math investigation for grade 4, 5 and 6 students.
It serves as more than a thematic activity and requires students to use math skills to learn about dinosaurs. Students use operations to work out how long dinosaurs are, use coordinates to find out where dinosaur fossils have been found, use a scale to compare human footprints to dinosaur footprints and more.

•Dinosaur Investigation black line masters (5 pages).
*A slightly easier version of the investigation to cater for different abilities (4 pages).
*Some challenge questions to cater for different abilities (1 page).
It can be undertaken individually or in groups depending on students’ needs.
