Iola High School FFA student Abigail Meiwes cut an apple into quarters and asked a group of fourth-graders to imagine it representing the Earth. 

She asked them to guess how much of the apple represented the Earth’s landmass, and pulled out one quarter. She cut that quarter in half, then kept cutting.

Finally, she held up a tiny sliver.
