Maths and art collide
9, 10, 11 year olds
I introduced the idea of being able to enlarge a drawing with more accuracy than simply by eye.
I gave the children the page below to experience the idea of transferring an image square by square. This was a challenge for some.
I think in the future I would have a simpler image for them to practice on.
This was followed by drawing up their own grid 3X the size of a small corner of a drawing.
I've explained this lesson fully here. enlarging-v5.
The following two pieces are close to being completed, the day was not long enough. It entailed a lot of concentrated work.
