Eggs and nests.

We have been looking at photos of dinosaur egg fossils. Did you know some were as long as 16cm long. We measured it against our arms.

To understand how big some dinosaur nests we used a book. We read that nests were a similar size to a car. So we went outside to measure a car. Mrs Cross’s car to be precise.


Then we measured it again in the classroom. Miss Irwin drew around our circle for the nest then we pretended to be dinosaur eggs and  hatched out like baby dinosaurs. An Ovitapyor could have had up to 25 eggs in its nest! 


We used the dinosaur information book to find out how big some baby dinosaurs could have grown.

To see how long an Antarcosaurus actually was we went outside to measure it on the playground. 


This is how it might have looked on our playground.
