How big would your wingspan be?

Bats have very big wings compared to their bodies. How big would your wings be if you were a bat?

Items you need for this activity:

  • Tape measure
  • Long craft paper (optional)

Measure how tall each student is and have them multiply their height by 3.

This is the student's wingspan. If you would like, you can have each student measure out craft paper that is as long as their bat wings and you can make a pair of "real sized" wings!
