Scaling the Map

New Review

The asteroid is getting closer and the question is whether the state of Alabraska is large enough for the shelter calculated in the previous activity. Teams determine the scale of their project and then use the scale on the map to determine distances and areas. Finally, individuals must determine whether the state of Alabraska is big enough for the shelter.
