On Wednesday, the elementary students had Spanish with Maria Greenland. Each group was working on a different scaled model of the island of Puerto Rico. With an island that is only approximately 3500 square miles, how big does it need to be on a regular 8 1/2 x 11″ sheet of paper? What if you could create the map in inches but cut those inches by half to fit on a reasonably sized sheet of paper? How big would the island be if you did it to scale, inches equaling miles?
