Length or height?
Lengths are usually measured sideways, like the snakes above. Heights are measured upwards, like the giraffes standing on the ground.
Can you find pairs of objects around your home to compare and see which is the shorter of the two and which is the longer?
Compare your height with someone in your family. Who is the taller and who is the shorter?
