5th Grade Superheros June 16, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 7:02 am

The fifth graders finished their superheros.  Beginning with a survey, the students created their ideal alter-ego, based on what super-power they wanted, as well as colors and names.  The students learned the correct proportions of the human body–7-8 heads tall.  We even measured a few student heads and multiplied that number by 7…the 7 head rule was always correct!

Next, the students learned how to put the human body in motion.  They practiced many poses, always keeping the body 7 heads tall.

After choosing a pose, the superhero was put into action.
