This is a fun project that allows students to use their knowledge of ratios, proportions, and similar figures to make a scale drawing of a cartoon. This project is a success because students enjoy drawing the cartoon and their pictures turn out fantastic. I can attest that I am horrible at drawing and even I made a good picture!
After looking at their finished project, students take pride in their work because they thought it would be "so hard" to do. I have done this activity in my class since my first year teaching and it is always one of the favorites! Great for upper elementary and middle school!
