- Students will learn to divide a picture into smaller parts in order to draw it one section at a time .
- Students will learn to grid a picture and enlarge it with accuracy.
- Paper (12″ x 18″)
- Picture to enlarge (8½ ” x 11″)
- Students will use a ruler to first divide their 12″x 18″ paper in half vertically at the 6 inch mark.
- Students will use a ruler to divide their paper in half horizontally at the 9 inch mark. (Students will now have a paper that is divided into four sections =fourths.)
- Students will now divide each of the fourths into four more fourths by marking the measurements given next.
- Students should have a line drawn vertically at the 3, 6, and the 9 inch mark of their paper.
- Students should have a line drawn horizontally at the 4 1/2 , 9, and the 13 1/2 mark of their paper.
- Students will now number each square. There should be 16 total.
- Students will now divide or fold the pictures that they will enlarge, into the same number of sections and number each of the 16 squares.
- Students will only look at the lines that they see in square #1 of their picture and draw them in the square #1 of their paper. Once they have completed square #1, they can move to square #2.
- Did I draw my grid correctly?
- Did I enlarge each square accurately?
- Did I complete my drawing neatly?
