Description:

After looking at vertebrate skeletons and viewing videos dealing with vertebrates, this is a hands-on exercise with data the students can gather from simulated dinosaur trackways. To scale footprints (cut from poster board) are taped to the hallway floor; one of a bipedal theropod and one a quadrapedal sauropod. Students make the appropriate measurements directly from the simulated trackways. These data, plus additional data provided, are the basis for calculations necessary to calculate speed. With this information, various questions are answered.
