Where Will This Take Us?

Eli and Levi have been busy in their own spare time thinking of ways to move our "turn science questions into a game" idea forward. They had more designs and sketched ideas to share.
Then, Ms. Agell shared an interactive map about sea monsters (click to view) that sparked a lot of conversation. Noting that one of the creatures had a 7 YARD tongue, we wondered just how long that would be. Fortunately the room had enough yardsticks...look how long Sea Monster Eli's wooden tongue stretches...straight out the door!

This sense-of-scale exploration lead us to real life comparisons. The chameleon has a super long tongue for its body. We watched a fine video on that, too.
I continue to be impressed by these young investigators. We have fun. Can you tell?
