AM 1 Study of the human proportions in body growth29 déc. 2016
Students started this activity from studying proportions of the Vitruvian man, a famous drawing made by Leonardo da Vinci, demonstrating proportions we can find in an average human body. Next, in pairs, with the use of measuring tapes, they went on to check how tall they are and how long are some of parts of their bodies. They took notes of all the details filling up their worksheets and next compared the data with the fractions of their height. In most cases proportions were noticeable. For younger children more distinctive differences were seen. Children enjoyed the activity, they were close to each other, compared their differences between expected and real values and were also able to confirm the fact that human bodies are actually proportional.
