My first thought was measuring a book. One could measure the number of pages, the length of time it would take to read it, the weight of it (if we were going to mail it), or the size, height of it and whether it would fit on a certain shelf on my book shelf.
I will measure the height of the spine when the spine is vertical and facing out! (I had to be real specific there when describing it!) I will use inches because I know the height of the shelf.
Cool exercise that contributed to my understanding of measurement and the need to be explicit/ specific given the context.
