Ryerson Students Complete ‘If I were a…’ Creations

February 2020 - Second grade students at Ryerson recently put some of their new math skills to work in a creative learning experience called “If I were a…”. Students were asked to measure their own body parts and then take those measurements and incorporate them into a new image. For example, a student might have measured their leg and then used that measurement for the height of a tree trunk. “If I were a…” creations included a tree, a dog, a cat, a unicorn, a teddy bear, and an ice cream truck.
