Lesson is complete with a warm-up on measuring with a ruler to the nearest 1/4 inch, followed by two pages of notes/guided practice on how to use proportions to answer questions involving scale. Another page contains a scale drawing of a playground. Students must tell how far apart the equipment is in real life as well as place an object on the drawing given its real life distance.
Next is a mini project where students have to follow directions with real life distances between playground equipment and make a scale drawing of it. Another page contains a task where students are given a scale drawing of 4 houses. They are given the distance between two of them in miles and must use a ruler to see the distance in inches. Using that information, they are to answer other questions about the scale drawings. The last page is an exit ticket involving a real world scale problem.
7 student pages plus answer keys.
