'Me & My Giant' third grade exercise at Crockett Elementary

March 14, 2011 by Anonymous

Weatherford High School senior Logan Hannah and his brother, Blake (WHS 2010 graduate) visited Crockett Elementary to give third grade students an opportunity to estimate, measure, and compare the measurement of height, circumference of the head, neck, wrist, nose, foot, and much more.

To the surprise of everyone, one measurement was exactly the same. The nose on both Logan and Crockett Elementary third grader Andrew Whitsitt measured 2 inches. The "Humble Giants,” to third graders, gave students an experience they will not soon forget.
