How Scouts Measure Height

Troop 26;

I hope you all are looking forward to a very nice weekend! I look forward to seeing you at Bryce’s eagle project tomorrow (see the emails sent this week from Bryce and Mr. Copenhaver) and at our Christmas Party on Monday evening!

For those of you that have not achieved First Class rank (and for those that would like a refresher), below is a great explanation of how to measure the height of a tall object using an object with a known height (like a stave) as a comparator. I will have a special prize on Monday for anyone who uses this method to figure out the height of the clocktower at the Energy West building in Great Falls. Please bring a piece of notepaper showing your work and how you figured it out.

Yours in Scouting,

Mr. Weissman
