Measurement Lab

Objective:
To be able to make a scale drawing of the classroom(top view of the room) without using conventional device.

Procedure:

Move the notebook toward the other side of the object and stop when the bottom of the notebook reaches the mark you just made.(At this point, the distance that the notebook just passed through should be one unit)
Continue the last two steps until the top of the notebook reaches or pass the other side of the object. (If the notebook passed through the edge of the object, then you should make a estimate length by the notebook scale)
Count how many units has the notebook passed through, record the measurement.
