May Stay-In: Marvellous Measure @ Home

You may have heard people talking about measurements in ‘feet’. Perhaps the height of a person, the size of a room or the length of a bed! But why feet? And how long is a foot?

We will be looking at how we measure things. Can you predict how long something is before measuring it? What units of measurement do we use? When and how did the earliest measurements begin? You will make your own foot ruler and use it to measure things around you and compare your measurements to others.
