The Truth about Road Signs

The Truth about Road Signs

If you traveled this holiday weekend, you probably noticed all kinds of road signs. Turns out the letters on those signs are WAY bigger than you think, because they're high above our heads and far away. Your cute little STOP sign at the corner is actually a 2 1/2-foot tall octagon, almost half the height of a grown-up. On big green highway signs, the blue and red interstate number is bigger than that whole stop sign -- and the letters and numbers are just as tall as you!

Read the story. Talk through the numbers. Kids do best when you do the math together!
