Today we started class with conversions involving some measurement the students made over the weekend. They measured their phones using their thumbs, their TVs and refrigerators with their hands, and their rooms with their feet. In class we measured those body parts and then converted them into more usual units.

Next we did conversions with some of the crazy things people do to get in the Guinness Book of World Records - like longest ear hair, skinniest waist, tallest man, etc. I think the one the kids thought was the weirdest was the lady who can pop her eyes out 12mm.

After all that review, students took their Thursday Quiz and followed up with notes on quantitative and qualitative measureements.

Tomorrow we will be doing a lab so students need to wear appropriate clothing. Homework tonight is boxes A, C, and F on the blue sheet.
