## Reflection: Measurement- Comparing Height Day 2 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

Yesterday we ran into some problems with students being upset about being taller or shorter.  This directly relates to the story today which was great!  When we finished reading the story, we talked about other reasons that is great to be every height.  We had some great answers like tall people get to be on the top riser when we sing on stage, but short people get to be in the front so their parents can see them better.  Tall people can reach things on high shelves, but short people don't hit their heads on on our class tree!

When do we need to work about who is taller?
