    measurement for parents night
    By Betty Ann Dhein

    Clip to ScrapBook
    When our team of second grade teachers had Math Night we had the parents and children measure their height and then their width (measure outstretched arms from one hand to the other including fingertips). Then you make a graph to record the results. Either square (equal measurements), tall rectangle (taller than wide) or wide rectangle (wider than tall). The children enjoyed the process and so did the parents. They had fun adding their names to the chart. You can have long pieces of string if you don't have enough tape measures. The length doesn't matter as much as the concept.
