|Maddie and Damon measuring "the big rock" during the Measurement Scavenger Hunt.|
We moved from singing to scale with the Measurement Scavenger hunt. Homesteaders worked in small groups to measure various items around camp.
|Jesslyn helping Homesteaders imagine real-life items scaled down on our rulers.|
We re-convened in the circle to discuss how big (or small!) the items would be if they were Peep-sized.
