Topo Map Field Work
I use this lab to have my students construct topo maps on our campus. The students walk a trail, record elevations and then use those elevations to construct a topo map. Make sure that you choose varied terrain for the best effect.
Topographic Maps - Contour Line Intrepretation
Students are required to match simple topographic map contour lines to their correct cross-sectional profile.
Latitude and Longitude using ESRT pages 4 & 5
Students will use pages 4 and 5 of their ESRT's to demonstrate their knowledge of latitude and longitude

The Great NYS Race
Students compete against each other while using their Earth Science Reference Table to determine locations in NYS. I used coordinates for each city from previous Regents exams. Have fun.
