The African Baobab Thinker
The African baobab tree can grow to 40 feet across and 60 feet high.
you and all your classmates were three feet tall. How many of
you equal the height of a baobab? Show your thinking here. You
may use pictures, numbers and words. There may be a manipulative
in your class that can help you to solve this problem.
(Maybe some of you are working on finding averages. Figure out the average height of three children in your class. Round-off your findings to a whole number and then solve the problem.)
