in a lesson about reading strategies and making predictions in math i was asked this... celia has a new kitten. it is 5 inches tall. will it be 5,12, or 24 inches tall when it is grown up? how do i fgure this out?

Look at your knees and your hips. Those are about 12 inches, and 24 inches. Which do you think will be the size of the cat?
If it grows to 24 inches tall, I would stay out of it's way. 
It wouldn't be growing at all if it was 5 and 24 inches is one big cat!

thats a stupid question and im a first grade teacher,... wow

12
