Can you point to who is tallest and who is smallest?

How can we measure things? There are lots of different ways. You could make your own tape measure using hand prints.









How many hand prints high are you?

How many hand prints tall are  your teddies or dinosaurs?  You could use lots of things to measure such as  crayons or blocks. What other things can you measure?




Who is the tallest  and the smallest in your Family?
