How Many Noses Are in Your Arm?

Middle schoolers apply concept of ratio and proportion to determine length of Statue of Liberty's torch-bearing arm. They view video of Statue of Liberty, determine how long statue's arm would be if its nose measures four feet six inches, develop strategy for finding solution using chart paper, string, and rulers, measure length of their own nose and arm and form a ratio, and compute length of statue's arm using proportions.

Lesson Planet has helped me a lot with my previous grade levels from K-6. Now I am reinstating my membership because I know it can help me more with my middle school special education classes.
