Day 64 / 102 - The Average Size of a Goldfish Cracker
While working with my children today on averages, I figured we might as well add in some measuring. As an added bonus, this week their Classical Conversations math memory work has them memorizing linear equivalents (2.54 cm = 1 in, etc). All of this was easily taught by grabbing the nearest item on the dining room table -- a bag of goldfish crackers.
In case you were curious, and can't tell by the pictures, the average size of a cracker in our two samples was 2 cm, or .901 in.
In creating this post, I also learned how to display two pictures as one. Something that anyone who is younger, or more tech-savvy, than me is probably very capable of doing repeatedly. This day has been wildly successful!
