Product Details

Give students a better sense of direction in three dimensions with this exploration of topography-related concepts. In this three-part activity, students will investigate how elevation and landforms are represented on contour-relief maps. Using simulated topographic maps and models, they also obtain a basic understanding of how topography influences the construction of many public works projects. Kit activities include: • Identifying common topographic map symbols • Analyzing a topographic map • Building a 3-D contour model Includes detailed student instructions, teacher notes and lab hints, and enough materials for 30 students working in pairs.
