The goal was to have children make a "fossil dinosaur trackway" that they could use to estimate their dinosaur's size (and thus what dinosaur they were) as well as their speed. This was largely the brain child of the awesome Dr. William Foster, who has done a similar outreach project with the Natural History Museum of London.
First, we cut out some dinosaur feet, covered them with cheap carpet and screwed them onto some crocks and sandals.
We soaked the bottom of these shoes in some (washable) paint and then had the kids put them on and walk along a strip of paper.
Then they measured their steps and strides...
We wrote everything down on these tracks and then the kids got to take their posters home as a souvenir!
Everybody wanted to be a dinosaur!
Fabulous job team, thanks everyone!
