Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

There are two versions of this assignment. In this one, each square is equal to one foot. There is another assignment with the same name, but a * on the end. That one is a bit more challenging, since every square is equal to three feet. I have both floating around my classroom, assigning one or the other based on the students skill level. Feel free to do the same in your classroom!
