'The smartest giant'

Kingfishers and Egrets worked together to learn about 'doubling'.  They looked at the story of 'The smartest giant'.  They measured their own shoes and socks and then doubled the measurements to see how long the giant's feet could be.  Afterwards they measured and designed clothes that the giant might be able to wear.
