Kudos for Math
When it comes to size, Bink andGollie couldn’t be more different.Help students measure different-sizeobjects in your classroom and at homeusing nonstandard measurements.Let each student trace one of his orher hands on construction paper,then cut out the hand shape, and useit to measure various items aroundthe classroom and at home. Beforestudents measure each object, askthem to estimate how many of theirhands they think it will measure. Thenhave students take the hand-lengthmeasurement and gure out thedifference between their estimatesand the actual length.
Kudos for Science
In the book, an ad for the AcmeStretch-o-Matic asks the question“Why should you be shorter thanyour friends?” Bink thinks this is agood question, so she buys the“top quality” machine. Ask yourstudents to think of somethingthat frustrates them. Thenhave them design a machine toaddress the situation or issuethat causes their frustration.Ask them to draw a picture of what the machine looks like, list its features, and name it. Finally,have them create an advertisement fortheir machine and invite each student topresent their machine to the rest of the class.
