Middle School Math Lesson: Scale Drawings

Middle school math lessons can be exciting and fun when you KING SIZE a mini candy bar. Teaching scale drawings is engaging when using candy. How do you get started? Follow the steps below: • Tape a candy wrapper onto graph paper. • Draw the grid lines over the top of the candy wrapper. • Determine a scale factor. (My scale drawing was 1/4 in. = 2 in.) • Enlarge the perimeter of the candy wrapper using proportional relationships. • Add the details using the grid lines as guidelines. Save this idea for an engaging classroom lesson.
