Product Description
My students love getting outside for this activity!

**You will need 1 measuring tape for each team.

Using the ratio of their height to the length of their shadow, students indirectly measure the height of a tree, flag pole or other tall object.

Although the activity does not mention similar triangles that is why the math works. I have used it as a fun introduction to similar triangles.

Editable.

Thanks for looking!
