Extra credit projects;

Science-  Investigate the sizes of the other planets and predict the size of models of the planets if Earth is represented by a golf ball. 

Social Studies- investigate how a map containing the wrong scale could give erroneous information.  Try to find examples of things that are not drawn to scale and share them with the me.

People of the World-  Estimate your European shoe size.  Then determine your actual European shoe size by multiplying the length of your feet in centimeters by 2/3.

Entertainment-  The largest sand castle ever built was 257.5 ft long.  Research sand sculptures and compare the sizes of those built entirely by hand with those built with the aid of bulldozers or other heavy machines.

Arts and Literature: Read Gulliver's Travels and report to the teacher about the size of other objects in the lands of Lilliput and Brobdingnag.

Extra Credit Report:

In this chapter project, you will design and make a scale model of your dream house.  Begin by thinking about other scale models you have seen, such as model trains and dollhouses.  Then make a simple sketch of your dream house.   Measure rooms at home to determine how large you want to make your dream house.  Then decide on an appropriate scale.  Use the scale you pick to make a drawing of your model.  Either build a model of your dream house using construction paper or calculate the amount of paper you would need if you were to build the model.
