A New Way to Measure
By Jane Runyon
  

1     "Oh, my," started Mrs. Kim, "I don't think we will be able to do our lesson today."
 
2     The children loved Mrs. Kim's science lessons.
 
3     Josh asked, "Why not?"
 
4     "Well," began Mrs. Kim, "I had planned for us to do some measuring today. But I forgot to bring any rulers to class. We can't measure anything without a ruler, can we?"
 
5     "What are we going to measure?" asked Matthew.
 
6     "I want you to measure the distance from one side of the classroom to the other side," answered Mrs. Kim.
 
7     "We could measure like my dad sometimes does," said C. J. "He sometimes just puts one foot in front of the other. I guess that's where we find out how many feet long something is."
 
8     "Let's see if that will work," said Mrs. Kim. "Why don't you see how many of your feet it takes to cross the room, C.J?"
 
9     C.J. began walking from one side of the classroom to the other. He put one foot down and then put the heel of his other foot at the toe of his first foot. He continued doing this until he had crossed the room.
 
10     "I counted thirty of my feet from one side to the other," C.J. announced.
