dc.description Among the several skills needed by the child to observe phenomena directly or through the reading lens of a map is the ability to visualize and determine size of an 2rea in relationship to space and time. The purpose of this paper, therefore, is to demonstrate from a multi-sensory point of view how a child through the grades may be taught the ability to visualize and and determine size of an area in relationship to space and time by comparison of things and places, numerals, graphs, shapes, points or circles, line segments or arcs, maps and time zones. Three ways will be utilized to illustrate teaching this conceptualization of the varying facets of size of an area: namely, comparing (1) things and places; (2) square miles; and (3) relative size through time zones. en
