    Scale drawings is much more abstract than it appears to those of us (adults) with experience.

    I wonder if maybe you used square tiles on the floor of the room and then compared using a much smaller cut out square of paper that will be the actual square.

    Could that comparison be helpful for students to gain a better perspective?

    Also starting with scaling by doubling / halving first can also be helpful. So taking say a drawing and scaling it up or down by a factor of 2 or 1 half?

    Thoughts?
