Which is taller, the London Eye or the Golden Gate Bridge?

Why do we build tall structures?

Read How Tall Is Tall? to learn about some of the world's tallest structures. Find out how we measure height and see how different types of structures compare.

Books in the Measuring and Comparing series look at simple measurements and what they mean. Each book explores the tools and units we use to measure, and gives a range of examples. Simple scale diagrams put the measurements in context and show how different objects compare. An activity at the end allows readers to put what they have learned into practice.
