Measuring Caterpillars

This week while we watched our caterpillars grow, 
I challenged the children to measure them.
Each day a child would pick a caterpillar and after looking at it,
they would thread beads onto a pipe cleaner.
Then record the number in our journal.
 First we would estimate how many beads we would need
then after measuring, remove or add beads as needed.
It won't be too many more days before most form their chrysalis.
