It is claimed that the head of an adult is one seventh of their height. Babies heads are one quarter of their length. We predicted whether our proportions would be closer to an adult or a baby. After making predictions, it was time to investigate!
In small groups, we created a table to record our results and then started to collect the data. We used a tape measure to find out our heights and then measured the lengths of our heads. Having found out our measurements, we then had some calculating to do!
Most of us discovered that our head sizes are also one seventh of our heights!
