# Height - Definition with Examples

## Let's learn!

**What is height?**

Height is often used to tell how tall someone or something is.

We can compare how tall we become as we grow up. Also, we often compare the height of things around us.

In math, height can be defined the vertical distance from the top to the base of the object.

Here, the height of the rectangular prism and triangle have been marked.

## Let's do it!

Have some fun and ask your child to make everyone stand in descending order of height. You can also ask them arrange more things in ascending or descending order of their height.
