    Growth chart
    By Jennie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Use it as a growth chart and plot children's heights four times during the year. (I'm assuming you can use all four sides). Cover it with paper first, then measure kids and mark their heights. You could attach a digital picture beside each kid's marks to show how tall they were/what they looked like at different times during the year. Kids could keep a line graph at their desks (math notebooks) charting their own individual growth during the year. At the end of the year, you can have kids find the number of inches they grew during the year. Then, turn that into a lesson on averaging. Have groups find the average # of inches they grew. Then they can find the mode, median and range in inches.
