Product Description
Scale Up A Candy Bar (Ratios)
Appropriate for grades 6-7 & Homeschool

PURPOSE:
Use this activity to guide your students through understanding how ratios may be used in real life. Your students will be required to measure an image length and width with accuracy. Then they will use scale factors and ratios to create a grid on that image and scale the image up to 5 times the size.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
☆3 pages of instructions for students to read and use
☆Printable Candy Bar Wrappers to Scale
☆Samples of Student Work

STORY:
I had seen that someone had this idea before – this is certainly not an original. So it is free to you but I went ahead and wrote out step-by-step how to do it. This activity took my students anywhere from 3-5 hours to complete. I would recommend this version of the activity for work with ratios and proportional reasoning commonly taught in 6th and 7th grades.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
If you are more interested in completing this activity using fractions, check out my alternate version of this activity: Scale Up a Candy Bar (Fractions)

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
☆Butcher Paper or Poster Board
☆Colored Pencils, Crayons or Markers
