Talk about how to take the measurements before starting the activity. Explain that you want them to complete the activities together but record on their own assignment. For the last page of the activity, explain that we will come back together to discuss everyones' findings. Discuss the importance of using a 'standard' measure and what a 'standard' measure means.
