Today, Judy read us a story called President Taft is Stuck in the Bath. This is a hilarious story about an incident at the White House that required a lot of assistance. As a result of the conundrum, a personalized and quite large bathtub was created for the 27th President. It is questionable as to whether or not this account is true, but we enjoyed it nonetheless.
Our class measured out the 8 foot by 4 foot bathtub that was supposedly built for the President after the event and then we tried to see how many fourth graders would fit in it. We determined that our entire class could fit inside standing up and sitting scrunched up, but there were a few of us left out when we sat comfortably in the tub.
