Description:

In this activity, learners interpret three trackways and use measurements and a formula to infer the relative speed of dinosaurs. A portion of the activity details how students can create their own trackways and evaluate the accuracy of the formula. This step-by-step lesson plan includes an illustrated look at stride length and a reproducible worksheet for learners to complete.
