Measuring Hands Down - Enrichment 7.1

How many hands tall are you? A passage about measuring the height of horses with the unit called a "hand" gives scholars the background needed to measure items using the width of their own hand. Learners use their hand measurement to measure objects in the classroom in centimeters. Students answer 2 questions where they explain how they measured decimals or fractions and how their measurement compared to their classmates' measurements.
