Vampire bats

az_vampire_bat Ooooo. Scary!  This is a slightly didactic activity on vampire bats.  We've given lots of interesting metric and customary unit facts and asked students to relate those sizes to quantities that they are familiar with.  Simply enjoy the season with this slightly creepy activity ... metric and customary units, size and weight comparisons, and blood-sucking bats.
