Product Description
This is a project that I use with my 10th grade college prep earth science classes. The idea behind the project is that the student must plan a backpacking trip. In addition to planning the route on a topographic map; they also must calculate the necessary food and water for the trip.

A student handout, grading criteria, and rubric are included. The topographic maps for Yellowstone, and Grand Teton National Parks are also included. Other places could be used with little difficulty. The maps have been formatted to print on 8.5x11 paper.
