Friday we wrapped up our unit on Similar Figures by working on Indirect Measurement. First thing we did was fill out our mini book Flippable with an example of Indirect Measurement of a Truffala tree (from the Lorax) and Max (from Where the Wild Things Are). We discussed how to determine the height of something if knew the height and shadow length of another thing as well as the shadow of the figure.
Today was a review day since we have a quiz over our unit on Proportions tomorrow. As a review, each student had to come up with their own “Corny” Proportion. It had to be about them and include Candy!
