### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fill your room or hallway with GIANTS as students learn to apply estimating, measurement, and doubling measurements in a dramatic way. Plus you can include reading and writing instruction in this Jack and the Beanstalk elementary math lesson.

After estimating the end result, children measure the different body parts of the giant, double them, transfer them to paper then get busy with paintbrushes.
