In 4Willow, we were given a science investigation involving dinosaur footprints. We were given life sized footprints of four dinosaurs, T Rex, Allosaurus, Velociraptor and Compsognathus. Our task was to find out how tall each dinosaur was, using the footprint to help, how long their legs were and how quick their relative speed was. We had to use our division and multiplication maths skills to help us.
We finished our investigation finding out if we could have outrun a T Rex. Scientists say it ran at 6.7metres per second. We measured out a 20 metre run but unfortunately the T Rex would have caught us all as it would have taken it 3 seconds to complete 20 metres, whilst our quickest time was 3.5 seconds!!!!!!
