George isn't tall enough to ride the greatest rollercoaster of all time, The Turbo Python 3000. He uses licorice whips to measure his height and determines that he is seven whips tall, one short of the eight-whip minimum! As he nibbles on his licorice, George looks for different ways to grow. His efforts seem to pay off when he measures himself again, but then he realizes that it's not that his legs are longer, it's that his stomach is fuller.
Educational Objective: Math: To help develop an understanding of the process of measuring and comparing using standard or nonstandard units of measure.
Live Action Segment : Kids try to measure the width of a room in hops. Trouble is, each kid hops a different number. The kids then measure each other using shoes. One shoe emerges as the standard, and its owner goes on a measuring spree.
