Measure the length of our legs and our longest step with string.

Use two colors of string for the two categories of measurement. I tied a knot on the leg measures to distinguish them from the step measures, but that of course didn’t prevent the kids to copy me a tie knots on all their pieces of string, too.

Math story:

Little Chick by Amy Hest and Anita Jeram

Original idea for the story book choice is from the book “Cowboys Count, Monkeys Measure, and Princesses Problem Solve: Building Early Math Skills Through Storybooks” by Jane Wilburne, Jane Keat and Mary Napoli.
