    Baby Proportions

    Overview

    Baby Proportions is an activity designed to challenge students to compare body measurement proportions of adults, students and infants. They then use these proportions to create a scale drawing of themselves and an infant enlarged to be their same height. The idea is to use real world measurements in practicing proportional relationship skills while creating an interesting image when finished.  

    Create a side-by-side image of a student and an infant, drawn to the same height as the student
