measuring up

The past two weeks have been full of last minute review sessions.  The kids were working so hard that I decided we should take a break and do something fun.  I saw an activity on measurement (can't remember where but I will update as soon as I find it) and so I decided now was a great time to try it out.

First, they measured each other's lengths.

Then they measured each other's arm spans.

(Don't worry about the incredibly messy desk in the background.)

(Love how this group tried to measure with rulers.  So silly.)

Once measured, they determined if they were a Square (length = arm span), a Long Rectangle (length > arm span), or Wide Rectangle (length < arm span).  Afterward, we graphed the results.
