How Big is a Dinosaur?

We found out some interesting things about the Apatosaurus.



We were really fascinated about the size because it was one of the largest land animals.

We learned that the tail was about 15 metres long. We measured how long this was..

and...

the Apatosaurus was between 21 and 27 metres long. We stretched out our arms and used a measuring tape to help us measure it....


It was huge!

What Sort of Dinosaur is This?

Chalmers brought a toy dinosaur to school on Friday. We looked at pictures to try and identify it. After looking at many pictures, we thought that it might be an Apatosaurus (Brontosaurus).
This is the picture he took.
















This was the picture we found.












What sort of dinosaur do you think his toy was ?

The Great Dinosaur Dig

This week we pretended to be Palaeontologists. With our special tools, we were involved in a 'dinosaur dig'




















Look at the fossils that we dug up...






















... we wondered... what sort of dinosaur had we discovered?
It was a
Dilophosaurus



Then we looked in books and went on the internet to find a picture to see what it looked like...

We are interested in this dinosaur and have decided to find out more about it.

What Would These Capsules Turn Into???

We started our exciting inquiry about dinosaurs by doing an experiment. We put tiny capsules in a glass of hot water and watched to see what would happened.........We were excited to see the results.......




Look at our dinosaurs! The children took their own photos
