  1. We counted up by twos five times. Then we had to do that five times to get it up to ten. Elephants need to sleep two hours a night, children sleep ten hours, so we get more rest than elephants.

    An elephant sleeps 2 hours and Heidy sleeps 10 hours each night. For the elephant to catch up to Heidy it has to sleep 5 days.

    Days are the units.

    The whole class, 3-206
