Description:

In this activity (located on page 2 of PDF), learners will look for a relationship between skull size and body length among various dinosaurs. Starting from a list of dinosaur measurements, learners will compare dinosaur sizes to common objects and create a chart that plots body length against skull length to see if the data predicts other dinosaurs' length from skull size. Relates to the linked video, DragonflyTV GPS: Baby Dinosaurs.
