Am I a Square?

  1. At this center students will compare their height to their arm span.
  2. They will first predict how tall they think they are and how long their arm span is.
  3. Then they will find out and record their information in a graph. From this information they have to decide if they are a square, a tall rectangle, or a wide rectangle.
  4. All of these steps are explained for students on this worksheet.
