LEGO Game: How Many Legos Long?

I handed my  roll of tape and a pile of 2 x 4 Duplos. Then I helped him measure his favorite stuffed monkey. He stuck one piece of tape near his monkey’s toes and a second piece at the top of his head. Then we worked together to lay a line of Duplos from one piece of tape to the other. My son was excited to count each one when he was finished.

C used the pile of Duplos to measure a book before I asked, “Are you taller or shorter than these two things?”

“Taller,” he confidently replied.

“So will it take more or less Duplos to stretch from your head to your toes?”

“Hmmm…. More?” he guessed.  He excitedly laid down next to the lines of Duplos to see whether or not he was right. {And he was!}

We spent several more minutes measuring toys we found around the house and talking about whether they were shorter or longer than each other.
