Life-Sized Lesson

Materials: measuring tape, sidewalk chalk, picture of sea creature

Choose a large sea creature; find out how big it is. Using a measuring tape, go outside and measure the length on a hard surface. Use chalk to draw the creature to its original size. How many people can fit inside the drawing? What would you do if you came face to face with this creature? Give your drawing a title and be sure to include its size.
