Art class may have been mistaken for aerobics, as students could be seen lifting their foot to their forearm, or stretching hands to the floor, in a quest to discover new mathematical and scientific facts about human body proportions. New and prior knowledge has been applied as they are encouraged to regularly evaluate the proportions within their work. When the work comes home, it may be interesting for parents to ask their child of any knowledge he/she has, about measurements within the body. It was first necessary to be able to follow procedural instructions to recreate a ‘stick figure’ in wire. This in itself was not easy. As they built on their work,  the wire armature has been referred to as ‘the skeleton’ and plasticine referred to as the ‘skin and muscles’.
