Bring Scale Models to Life, just in time for the Holidays!!
This project is one I used with my students last year as we learned about similar figures and scale models during our proportional reasoning unit. The really cool part was that the theater in two was presenting "A Christmas Carol" and was happy to feature the top 3 scale models in the lobby throughout the performances. Our local library advisory board judged all the models in round 1 so I could narrow the winners to a top 10 group which were judged again by administrators to announce a final top three. The students loved this project!!!!! It has also really helped this year as many of my students from last year in 7th grade are now participating in Feature City and are required to build 3D scale models!!!
The bonus is a cool connection to art which really engages your creative students
