So today our assistant principal was in my room and was asking the students about the project. Shout out to H if you are reading this 🙂 She asked one of the students what book this was based on and he responded, “If I Were a Village…” As I corrected him, the stars aligned and I was inspired.
If I changed it to if I were a village, we can extend the project to include fractions, decimals, and percents!
When I continued to think about what I wanted the kids to work on for this next part of the project, I was reminded of these infographics that I saw in my original if the world were a village research.
So Global Man was born:
Students will estimate the area of the man, convert their data from the orignial project to fractions, decimals, and percents, then color in the correct number of squares in Global Man!
