how do I measure up?
Learning many different ways to measure the length of things, using our feet, tape measures, rulers, string, paper clips, we spent the day estimating and measuring around our house and yard.
our tub is 7 Jack feet long.
our book shelf is 7 solomon feet high.
our kitchen stools are 3 1/2 ephraim feet high.
Jacks arm span is as tall as he is -50 inches, while Solomon's arm span is longer than his height.
We used this mini book print out for one of our activities... and found some other resources here and here.
We used some activities from this too.
