How Tall Are You?
Measuring is an important part of math and science. Children love to measure!
- a ruler
- pencil and paper
- the smallest and largest shoe in your home
Have your child lay down on the ground. Put a mark at the bottom of your child’s foot and top of their head. Have your child stand up! Now measure between the two marks—use a ruler to measure how tall your child is in inches.
Next, pick other things to use as your measure!
- How many feet, walking heel to toe?
- How many hands?
- How many small shoes and large shoes?
Write down your measurements. Try measuring family members, too!
