How tall is a metre. This is what Koby-Tre and Teale thought.


Using a metre ruler to check our estimations. It was a bit of a surprise to find out that our own heights meant that a metre height was at different places on our bodies.


We worked together to design Captain Blood's pirate sip. The measurements were:
deck length 10 metres
mid mast 5 metres
fore and aft masts 4 metres each
plank 1metre.
We ALL fit on the deck, with room to spare! Ten metres is long!
