Bell Work

Arm Length

Have your kids get in groups to measure and compare the lengths of their arms. They should use a tape measure to do this. Have them compare the results with the rest of the class. For more advanced students, have them compare the ratio of arm lengths to height--find the "perfectly proportional" student based on the average.
