Who's bigger: an Emperor Penguin or one of my kids?

One of the best things about home schooling is that we have lots of hands on activities. As part of Eden's math assignment for Penguins, we got to take measurements to see who was bigger an Emperor Penguin or one of the kids.

 Here are our stats based on the measurement the kids took:

Emperor Penguin = 42 inches
Eden = 41.5 inches
Josiah = 40.5 inches
Titus =  32 inches

Emperor  Penguin = 90 lbs.
Eden = 39.5 lbs
Josiah = 41 lbs
Titus = 27 lbs 

The Penguin won by .5 inches,  and by 49 lbs!
Penguins  are some short fat creatures!
