Part of the Dinosaurs: Activities and Lesson Plans Curriculum Collection.
In the Roosevelt Memorial Hall at the American Museum of Natural History, a Barosaurus rears up to a height of 50 feet as it protects its offspring from an Allosaurus attack. Some dinosaurs, such as the Barosaurus, were quite large and may have weighed as much as 35 tons. But other dinosaurs, such as Compsognathus, were about the size of a chicken and weighed only eight pounds.
In this activity, students will begin to explore the size of the large dinosaurs by comparing their feet to the foot of a large Apatosaur.
