Product Description
Product Description
Students will learn about topographic maps, use a graphic organizer to master vocabulary, then build a landform model using topographic map layers, and answer questions using their notes, model, and map.


Important Information
This activity can be used to introduce, review, and assess how topographic maps are formed and used. It can be used over several days/classes.


What’s Included
This activity includes 6 student pages:
• Topographic Mapping Background Notes
• Vocabulary Notes Graphic Organizer
• Two pages of Topographic Map Layers (to build landform model)
• Topographic Map
• Questions sheet (to be used with model & map)
Plus Instructions & KEYS

How it Works
Begin by introducing Topographic maps with the Background notes and vocabulary graphic organizer for each student. Once students have completed these, give each student a copy of the Topographic Map Layers sheets. Students will cut the layers out and use a glue stick/ double sided tape to build their landform model (this works best with small pieces of cardboard between each layer to give a 3-D effect). Once students build their model, they will compare it to the Topographic Map. Then using the map and model, students will answer the questions.
