Scaling Models With Sabertooth Tiger Teeth.
As many of you know I homeschool my two sons (nothing like doing math in your pajamas). I'm going to be posting some stuff that we do with my five-year old. It's basic but it may spark some ideas to use in your classroom.
In this lesson we talked about Sabertooth Tigers and how their two large teeth measured 12inches in length. I wanted to compare this to our teeth. So we measured and figured our that our teeth were about 7 tenths of an inch. The goal was to let him figure out what he would look like if he had sabertooth size teeth. This was the result.
