Did you notice that two kids who are about the same height may have recorded some very different numbers? One was 38 tall, and the other was 12! What's the deal? Nancy Drew called and gave us some tips on solving this mystery; let's measure the same items! Put on your detective hats, choose a measuring tool, and select an object to measure: a clipboard, the couch, the rug, or the table.

We'll meet back at the rug later to compare our clues and solve this mathematical mystery.
