drag the lines up or down order them from longest to shortest put the longest line on top all right out of these three lines the longest one is this one so I click on this and I move it to the top and they want us to order from longest to shortest so we want the longest on top and the shortest on the bottom and the medium one in the middle and that's what we have longest less long and the least long or the shortest right over there let's keep going all right is it taller or shorter so let's see this whale even if we don't count the water that's coming out of its spout is taller than these three blocks so I would say the whale is taller than three blocks if I said the whale is shorter than three blocks it wouldn't make sense because the whale is more than three blocks tall so it's taller than the three blocks the squirrel is well the squirrel is clearly shorter than the three blocks it looks like it's about two blocks tall so the squirrel is shorter than the two blocks we scroll down because it's another question so the whale is blank the squirrel well the whale is going to be taller than the squirrel and you could see that if you just compare compare the whale straight to the square or you could say look if the whale is more than three blocks the whale is taller than three blocks the squirrel is shorter than three blocks so the whale must be taller than the squirrel because the whale is taller than the blocks which are taller than the squirrel so the whale is going to be taller than the squirrel let's keep going is it taller or shorter the cookie is shorter than these five blocks the ice-cream cone is well looks it's taller than the five blocks so the cookie is well the cookies shorter than the five blocks which is shorter than the ice-cream cone the ice cream cone is taller than the blocks which are taller than the cookie so the cookie is for sure shorter than the ice cream cone it's shorter than this which is shorter than the ice cream cone so it's definitely shorter than the ice cream cone let's do one more is it taller or shorter well the penguin is taller than the four blocks the turtle is shorter than the ten blocks within this eye - the four blocks the penguin is taller than four blocks the turtle is shorter than four blocks so the penguin is what's going to be taller than the turtle the penguin is taller than the blocks which are taller than the turtle so the penguin is taller than the turtle lots of fun
