Life Sized Dinosaur

How big is a real dinosaur?
Room 12 wanted to find out what a 20 metre long Apatosaurus looked like, so we drew it to scale on the court. Take a look at how we did it.

Well done Room 12 and 13.
It was a great movie to watch. We like watching the dinosaur being built.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Rooms 12 & 13,

We liked looking at how you drew your dinosaur. It must have taken a long time to draw.

Keep up the great work.

You guys are very clever! I love the way you used the grid method to enlarge the image. I used the same method to enlarge the image of the T-Rex in the foyer mural.It really is hard to imagine creatures this size walking around. I bet the ground shook whenever they moved! Who was the brave person who climbed on the roof to get the final photograph?
Awesome job Rooms 12 & 13

Wow that must have been hard work. It looks fantastic though. Well done everyone! Looks like everyone had a lot of work to do but shows you were having fun.20 metres long? Wow imagine if a dinosaur that long came to school.

Hi Room 12 & 13

Awesome movie! That was a very clever idea to use a grid to draw an Apatosaurus to scale. That dinosaur looked huge! Imagine one of those walking around our school.

I also loved watching your movie when it was on the school news (PENN). Room 18 were amazed!
