When I told them they could see how many blocks long/tall they were, I think they almost cheered. Maybe it helped that we had a place to record our results. (My oil drip pan came in handy again.)
First one friend would measure another.
Then the friends would trade off.
Don't forget to record those results.
I think they almost cheered as they did this activity.

I'm dusting off those "won't work" activities - especially the ones with math or blocks connections - and trying them out again.
What activities have you found that "won't work" with your groups of kids?
