Measuring Halloween Candy

Today we measured Halloween candy in as many ways as we could think of (except for their caloric measurement!).

Isaac finds his longest and fattest pieces.

Stretched end to end, 211 pieces of candy are remarkably long (1094 cm.).

We don't have scales, so we rigged up this balance scale with a hanger and plastic bags.

Here Isaac and Eleanor investigate how many pieces of candy equal the weight of one apple (25, in case you were wondering).
