2. apply and use scale drawing in converting lengths and distances of objects in his/her environment to any scale.

RATIONALE

Drawing is a way of making marks to represent an object. You can’t have technology without making something first. A drawing that shows a real object with accurate sizes reduced or enlarged by a certain amount is called the scale. A scale tells what the length of object, map or plan represents in real life. Scale is shown using a ratio.

It is important therefore that children are exposed to the practice of scale drawing early enough to enable them to develop the skills of technical drawing.

LEARNING MATERIALS

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:

1. Different scale
2. Ruler
3. Measuring apes
