Day 63 – Measuring a Chicken

“But I need to measure her…so I can sew her a little suit.”

This is what my 9 year old daughter said to me as I caught her red-handed with a chicken in the house. We had already read for the day, done a Bible lesson from Exodus, and watched the Prince of Egypt as a treat when I sent the girls outside to play.

All of that sewing the other day was really inspiring, however, and my girls were just so eager to get their hands on a little real-life model. They chose Popcorn, the Sultan Hen:

Popcorn

They measured…

Measuring Popcorn 1

And measured…

Measuring Popcorn 2

And measured…

Measuring Popcorn 3

And measured some more.

Measuring Popcorn 4

They added, subtracted, jotted down numbers, and recorded their measurements in a notebook. Their work is currently in progress.
