Go For the Gold

Go for gold to understand the concept of the Golden Ratio. Learners measure their faces, their nose length, eye space, mouth location, etc. This information is used to determine the ratios of their facial features in order to determine how close their facial features are to the Golden Ratio. They draw goofy faces that are proportional according to the golden ratio. A great way to incorporate history, art, and math!
