Introduce students to non-standard measuring tools with this online video. After the first student on the video has measured the given distance in footsteps, pause the video and ask your students what result they would expect if another student were to measure the same distance in footsteps. What would happen to the measurement if the second student’s foot size was larger? What would happen if their foot size was smaller?
