Math Story - General Sherman Tree

Instructions: Read the math story. Then, answer the questions.

Sequoia National Park in California is known for its giant trees. The largest of these is the General Sherman Tree. The General Sherman Tree is about 275 feet tall. That’s taller than a 27-story building!

Imagine you could use a piece of string to measure around the truck of the General Sherman Tree. Your string would need to be one hundred three feet long!

Although the General Sherman Tree is very tall, there are taller trees. One tree in California’s Redwood National Forest is over 379 feet high! Maybe there is an even taller tree hidden deep in the forest. Do you think there could be a tree 380, 390, or even 400 feet tall somewhere?
