The Shadow Knows: Student Worksheet

How can you measure the height of a tree or telephone pole with only a short measuring tape?  It's not a problem when you start by measuring your shadow and your height to create a ratio to use with taller objects. Additional activities include creating a data table, predicting the height of additional people and objects as well as discussing the application of this skill that can be used in the real world.
