Beastly Measures

Today you investigated how your dinosaur changed from yesterday.  As a group, discuss the changes and explain them here.  What do you think is causing the dinosaur to grow?

    We think our dinosaur grew because the water and the gel are making the dinosaur expand and get bigger.

  3. Today we learned that when the dinosaur was placed in the water it grew in size. Yesterday it's mass was 34g and today it was 130g. It's length was 11.4 cm and today it is 17.1 cm. The height was 5.2 and today it is 7.3. We think the water is causing it to expand.

    We think that the dinosaur grew when we put it in water because we think it absorbs the water through the hole at the bottom and gets heavier like a sponge and we think it gets taller because when we put t in water the gel might expand

    Our dinosaur grew 3 cm in length today.Yesterday it was 19 cm and now it's 22cm in length.The height stayed the same though the dinosaur is 10 cm in height.It grew 1 cm in width and it was 7 cm yesterday and today it is 8 cm in width.Today it got heavier in mass by 94.5 g and it was 207 g and today it is 293.5 g.We think that a close estimate
    for the length, height, width, and mass would be...Length:25 cm height:10 cm width:9 cm
    mass:380.0 g
