    Lets try this again (tried responding a few days ago and it all disappeared).

    As many have said above, direct comparison is where objects are compared side by side, visually compared (eye-balling it). An indirect comparison uses another object (like a string) to help make a measurement.

    Opportunities to provide experiences for children to make such comparisons like cooking and baking are great for developing their spatial reasoning.
