Then, use the ruler and compare your child’s foot to the ruler and take measurements.  Can they convert their foot to inches on the ruler?  See if it matches up!  This is an example of using non-standard units of measurement (their foot) and standard units of measurements (the ruler).  Be ready to share on Thursday! Finish putting your family in order!  Order your family members.  Draw them shortest to tallest or tallest to shortest.  Share during Zoom!
