This activity is designed to be used in conjunction with the book How Big Is A Foot? Written and Illustrated by Rolf Myller.
I use this activity to introduce the concept of measuring length, and to help the children understand why standard units and precision in measuring are necessary.
This book is available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Google eBooks. It may also be available through other sources.
