Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Ask: How could you hold an airplane, building, bridge, or the Atlantic Ocean in your hand?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion. Lead the conversation to scale drawings and models.
  3. Ask students to give examples of scale drawings or models they have seen or used in their life. Ask if they understand why they are used.
  4. Allow for responses and discussion.
  5. Distribute Scale Drawings content pages. Read and review the information with the students. Save the final question for the lesson closing. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding and for more examples to use with the class.
  6. Distribute Activity page. Read and review the instructions. Pair students. Distribute rulers and a large sheet of white drawing paper. (Optional: Use graph paper) Remind students to be as realistic as possible with the sizes of the rooms in the house.
  7. Circulate through the room as students work. Once completed, allow each pair of students to present their scale drawing and to explain why they designed the home as they did. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses.
  8. Distribute the Homework page. The next day, check and review the students’ responses. Allow volunteers to display room drawings.
  9. In closing, ask: If you could have a scale drawing or model of anything in the world, what would it be and why? Expand the question to ask about places or things students may have not seen in person.
  10. Allow for responses and discussion.
