Mayflower Measurements
Old 11-16-2007, 05:58 AM
 

A teacher down the hall uses yarn and maskint tape to measure out the mayflower down the hall. She doesn't have exact measurements but uses the available information to estimate 90 feet. Our halls aren't wide enough to show the width, but the kids measure out like a 5 x 5' square about in the middle of the ship...this is the size of the living quarters for a family of 5. The kids love it and it hits math & social studies. You could even have them write an essay about it! She uses information she found on online...

Hope this helps!

OOOHHH. We are making turkeys on Tues. You need plastic cups, yarn, sponges, construction paper, and glue. I have made patterns for the turkey body, which I staple to the front of the cup-and patterns for feathers, 5 stapled across the back. Poke a hole in the top of the cup and pull a 10" piece of yarn through & knot it. Then tie the other end around a small (maybe 1 x .5") sponge. Wet the sponge and grab the string with it, up inside of the cup, and hold tight while you pull the sponge down the length of the string. It GOBBLES!! Hillarious and the kids love it!
