Humongous Hero is a project that involves proportions and the use of scale. Students use proportions and the handprint of the Humongous Hero to determine its height and body measurements. Then they make a scale model of the superhero that can be drawn on poster board. Finally, students use proportions to determine the dimensions of various items owned by the hero.

Teacher Testimonial: Humongous Hero is a group project that the students really enjoy. They measure each other to help determine the size of the Humongous Hero and then use a scale to reduce the superhero down to a size that can be drawn on their poster board. When I have used this project before, the students really enjoyed designing the look of the person (superhero) and they relied upon their mathematics to keep him in proportion.

Enjoy your lesson!!

Teacher Feedback:

"My students enjoyed working on the "Humongous Hero" Project. It provided a much-needed break from the daily math routine. After reviewing proportions and the proportion equality, the students were able to apply that knowledge to this giant "hero" and create his "scaled down" image together. It was a great cooperative learning activity. Thank you, Mark, for the detailed directions and great worksheets."
