Rulers are great tools. While I like to use my ruler to draw straight lines, etc.....

measuring with a ruler

My son had other ideas for using the ruler. Like measuring how long our arms are. First he measured his. Then mine. Then he compared.

Have you ever been measured by a ruler or other object? LOL

  7. I'm pretty sure we had days in grade school where we measured oodles of things. I remember we had to measure each other for that project too. That was a fun way to work on math. :)
