Direct Instruction
The learning intention for this lesson was to use Multiplicative knowledge to solve Measurement themed problems. Each learner measured the length of their feet, and then paced out the height of their partner. With the length of the feet, and the number of paces it took to pace out their partner, they were able to multiply the two numbers to equal the height.

Reflection
Despite being a relatively structured problem, the variance in measurements allowed for a vast difference in difficulty for the problems. One learner ended up with the equation 21 cm x 7 paces, when compared to the learner who ended up with 22.3 cm x 6.5 paces, it is relatively easy. This led to great discussion later, and the open ended style of problem seemed to appeal. Overall it was a very successful lesson, particularly the authentic use of the multiplicative thinking.
Things to note
A wonderful little helper decided to "help" adjust the cameras before we began without my notice. Apologies for the cut off head. 

Walt: use multiplication in mesurement.
