2nd & 3rd Grades - Measurements of Guatemala

A visit from landscape designer and social justice ambassador Julie Siegel capped off this week of measurement. She came and shared how the indigenous Maya people of Guatemala measure things in their lives. Handwoven bags (held by two students), compost, food, and water are the most important measurements for this people. Most of those measurements, we discovered, are taken by eye, and are estimated from trial and error and experience, rather than using instruments or tools.
