Non standard units of measure

The Ancient Egyptians were very good at measuring - or were they? What do you think? Are there any problems with using body parts to measure with?


Your task today - create your own non standard form of measuring. (Mrs Mc measured with socks!).

Find at least 10 different things to measure.

Record your results and create a vertical bar graph on PURPLE MASH - a 2Do has been set. (Don't forget the labels on your graph!)
