Product Description


How do topographers make a flat map out of our not-so-flat or rather “bumpy” world? Students make their own topographical map using this plastic model reproduction of a steep-sided volcano located in New Mexico-Mt. Capulin. Students draw contour lines on the 3-D plastic model by progressively adding water to the box, centimeter by centimeter. Trace the irregular concentric circles on the plastic lid and- voila!-watch the contour model appear! Students proudly compare their map to the provided aerial photograph of Mt. Capulin.

Kit includes:
transparent molded plastic box containing volcano, transparent plastic lid, metric ruler, marking pencil, and student investigation sheets detailing the activities. This kit will serve one lab group of 3-4 students.
