Thank you to all families that sent in information about your preschooler's birth weight and height. Today, we used the birth weight information to do some comparisons. First, we made a stack of blocks that was equal to 7 pounds. (7 pounds was the average number for the birth weights.) We put those blocks in a bag and passed the bag so that we could feel what that much weight felt like. Then, we used a scale to make a comparison between birth weight and our weight today. We have all grown so much! Later this week, we will use the birth length information to make a comparison to our current height.
