Answers to Extra Challenges
  1. Children will find different objects in the classroom that are the same size as their hands, feet, and thumbs. A crayon or block is probably about the same size as their hands. A book or a small paintbrush should be around the same size as their feet. Finally, a piece of broken chalk or crayon will be close to the same size as their thumbs. There are many possibilities!

  2. Children might simply line objects up based on which is visibly the smallest to the largest object. However, try to encourage them to measure the objects using cubes or another small object so that they can compare the actual measurements.

  3. Children will come up with different numbers, however, no matter what the numbers, the measurement for the giant steps should always be the smallest, the regular steps should be bigger, and the heel–to–toe steps should be the largest.
