## Year 5 and Year 6 Dinosaurs Cross Curricular Activities Booklet

Year 5 and Year 6 Dinosaurs Cross Curricular Activities - A booklet based around pre-historical beasts with 4 differentiated sections in each activity. This resource covers a range of Mathematics, English and Science objectives. The worksheets require the children to: answer comprehension questions based on a non fiction text; order or describe the process of fossilisation; interpret data given in a line graph, then transfer that data to a table and answer questions; give coordinates on a one or four quadrant graph; order mixed lengths given in metres, centimetres and millimetres.​

### What's included in the pack?

This pack includes:

• Dinosaurs teacher version with answers (two differentiated sets - year 5 and year 6).
• Interactive pupil versions for each level to use on any device with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

#### National Curriculum Objectives and Differentiation:

Comprehension

English Year 5 & Year 6: Retrieve, record and present information from non-fiction

Section A Answer a range of multiple choice questions.
Section B Use information in the text to identify true or false statements.
Section C Complete missing parts of a chart using information from the text.
Section D Use a dictionary to find the meaning of 8 words from the text.

Fossils

Science Year 6: Recognise that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago

Section A Number the steps of fossilisation in the correct order.
Section B Describe the fossilisation process of a specimen, using a picture.
Section C Describe the fossilisation process of two specimens without pictures.
Section D Explain how we get information from fossils and the process of excavation.

Museum Statistics

Mathematics Year 5: Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph

Mathematics Year 6: Interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems

Section A Fill in a table using information given on a line graph; find the totals of 12 numbers; answer three questions. Section B Fill in a table using information given on a line graph; find quarterly and yearly totals; answer three questions.
Section B Fill in a table using information given on a line graph; find quarterly and yearly totals; answer three questions.
Section C Fill in a table using relevant information given on a line graph; find averages; determine yearly profit for one ticket price; choose an exhibit to close based on data.
Section D Fill in a table using relevant information given on a line graph; find averages; determine profit difference for two ticket prices; choose an exhibit to close based on data.

Grid References

Mathematics Year 5: Identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed

Mathematics Year 6: Describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all four quadrants)

Mathematics Year 6: Draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes

Section A Make 6 translations and find the new coordinates for given symbols.
Section B Describe coordinates on a marked full coordinate grid for 6 symbols.
Section C Describe coordinates on an unmarked full coordinate grid for 8 symbols.
Section D Describe coordinates on an unmarked full coordinate grid for 8 symbols. Then reflect each symbol in either the x or y axis and give the new coordinates.

Ordering Lengths

Mathematics Year 5: Convert between different units of metric measure (for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre)

Mathematics Year 6: Use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to three decimal places

Section A Order mixed lengths (whole numbers) from shortest to longest (m, cm, mm).
Section B Order mixed lengths (up to 1 decimal place) from shortest to longest (m, cm, mm).
Section C Order mixed lengths (up to 2 decimal places) from shortest to longest (km, m, cm, mm).
Section D Order mixed lengths (up to 3 decimal places) from shortest to longest (km, m, cm, mm).
