Topography Lab In 3-D
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students can use foam sheets or trays, or they can use corrugated cardboard to make a three dimensional step model of a real New York State landscape. (Or you can use a local USGS Topo map.) The file includes the lab, a map, a key and teaching tips.

Topographic Profiles Practice
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will create two profiles, find distance and gradient on a small included topographic map.

Reading Isobars
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students interpret hurricane data (station model data, isobars, wind direction) to find the relationship between pressure gradients and wind speed.

Interpreting Topo Maps
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will use topographic map to identify surface features.

Hurricane Tracking Lab
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab, you'll plot the path of the tropical depressions, storms, and hurricanes that occur during the current Atlantic hurricane season in an effort to learn where hurricanes get their energy, where they go, and why.

Hurricane Tracking Chart
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this lab, you'll plot the path of the tropical depressions, storms, and hurricanes that occur during the current Atlantic hurricane season in an effort to learn where hurricanes get their energy, where they go, and why.

Features Of The Home Planet
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
A simple pencil and paper activity to introduce students to latitude, longitude and world geography.

Creating Topographic Maps
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students can use Microsoft Excel to create three-dimensional topographic maps. Just change the elevation data and the map automatically changes!

Contour Plates By Drew Patrick
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students construct 3-D models of topographic maps using glass plates.

Connecticut River Profile Lab By Steve Kluge
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Use the data table provided to construct a profile of the Connecticut River from it's mouth to it's source.
