6th Graders Use Ratio to Create Mega Me

Our sixth grade math students have been studying ratio for the past month or two, and put it to use in a great project. Each class first made 'mini mes' by measuring themselves in centimeters to make half-sized and 1/10th-sized replicas of themselves and families. They then went the other direction to create 'mega me' creations that were five times the normal size. One student from each class was turned into a Mega Me to the tune of seven meters tall, with all students working together to measure, draw and paint the finished creations. Take a look at Mega Izzy and Mega Tessa!
