Dino Measurement Project Learning – 2nd – Printable & Google Distance Learning



Dino Measurement Project Learning 2nd Grade

⭐ Dino Measurement is a project based learning unit for 2nd grade based all around comparing, estimating, and modeling heights of different dinosaurs. This resource contains a standards-based unit in both printable PDF and Google Slides versions – so it’s the perfect activity to increase engagement and interest for the classroom or distance learning. Students follow instructions to investigate the actual heights of different dinosaurs using various measurement tools and data displays. Additional “challenge activities” engage students and develop further understanding of the concepts and skills.


⭐ This project-based learning task that involves using the following CCSS Measurement & Data math standards to solve problems related to dinosaur heights:


  • MD.A.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools.
  • MD.A.2 Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describing how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.
  • 2.MD.A.3 Estimate lengths.
  • 2.MD.A.4 Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another.
  • 2.MD.B.5 Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units.
  • 2.MD.B.6 Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram.
  • 2.MD.D.9 Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects. Show measurements on a line plot.
  • 2.MD.D.10 Draw a picture graph and bar graph to represent data.


Key Features:


✏️ Printable & Digital Format – Printable PDF & Google Slides formats make this resource perfect for classroom instruction, distance learning, and everywhere in between. Digital and printable versions are consistent, so it can be used for combination classroom and virtual instruction situations.


✏️ Educational & Engaging – This resource will capture the imagination of your students while they practice key math skills. Students are hired as a paleontologist to study dinosaur measurement. Their job is to go into the field and use data from paleontologists to compare the heights of various dinosaurs.


✏️ Differentiation – Three challenge activities means that you can challenge your high performing students while making the resource accessible to your on level and below level students.
