George needs to figure out how to measure a building’s height in this video excerpt from Curious George: George Measures Up. In the accompanying lesson plan, children use pictures they’ve drawn on different-sized pieces of paper as nonstandard units to measure larger items at school. They then experiment with tools that use standard units to measure different-sized pieces of spaghetti.
