I am so excited for this activity because it covers so many different skills in such a fun way.
As we compare a dinosaur’s track with our tracks, we will be teaching our Lil’ about measuring, comparing, predicting, experimenting, and drawing conclusions. That is 5 math and science skills in 1 fun engaging lesson!

Lil’ Explorers Focus Skills

Measurement

• Compare two sets using the terms more, less, or same as
• Use nonstandard units to measure items (hand lengths, string lengths, etc.)

Science

• Pose “what” and “why” questions about their surroundings
• Make predictions and perform experiments

Lil’ Creators Focus Skills

Measurement

• Compare 3 sets using the terms more, less, same as, equal to, most and least
• Use nonstandard units to measure items (hand lengths, string lengths, etc.)

Science

• Pose “what,” “why” and “how” questions about their surroundings
• Make predictions, perform experiments, and discuss results

#### *Ruler

##### Step #1
• Whose foot will be bigger: a dinosaur’s or your Lil’s?
##### Step #2
Roll out 4 1/2 feet of paper.
##### Step #3
Draw a dinosaur foot that is about 4 feet long. (This is the appoximate size of a T-Rex’s foot.)
• I drew mine by making a large U and adding a few points to the top for the claws.
