**Main Lesson - **Following our quiz from yesterday, I would like you to find 1 thing that measure the same length as some of the sea animals from the quiz. You can use a measuring tape if you have one at home. If you don't have one at home you can print out the template below to make your own.

As our book this week is The Snail and the Whale I would like you to use your division skills to work out how many sea creatures would measure the same as the Blue Whale.

Work out the word problems below -

1) The Blue Whale measures 27 metres. A dolphin measures 3 metres. How many dolphins would it take to measure the same as a Blue Whale?

2) The Blue Whale measures 27 metres. A Manta ray measure 7 metres. How many Manta ray would it take to measure the same as a Blue Whale?

3) The Blue Whale measures 27 metres. An Electric eel measures 2.5 metres. How many Electric eels would it take to measure the same as a Blue Whale?

**Challenge** - Measure your own height and round it to the nearest metre. How many of you would it take to measure the same as a Blue Whale?
