Using the website, thetruesize.com, students follow instructions to compare the size of countries by placing them on top of one another. Students will gain a greater appreciation for the size of some states and nations. Teachers can also make their own additions (such as adding their home state/country). Use these worksheets for a grade or for a fun activity.
(*One of the purposes the site was created was to show the distortion created by the Mercator map projection. When moving nations towards the poles, they will appear to grow. This, however, still shows the relative size difference within that particular latitude.)
