We read the story of Jim and the Beanstalk to look at a different version of a familiar story. We decided we wanted to make the giant some new glasses that were 3 times bigger. Using our 3 times tables we multiplied the measurements to make the glasses the correct size.
The giant also loved to eat boys on toast! We wanted to know how big the toast would need to be to fit 3 boys on the toast. It took a lot of measuring and then adding those measurements together.
