Your Local Topo Map
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
This is a generic activity. So we suggest adding and/or taking out questions to better match the special features of your own local map. (Your own questions can be printed and pasted on your "master copy" over weaker items on this generic worksheet.)

Using Latitude, Longitude
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will identify cities based on latitude and longitude information.

Up, Down, And Downstream
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Many students think rivers always flow south. This misconception can be illustrated as such by this activity. You?ll need to supply outline maps of the USA and the world.

Tracking Hurricane Isadore
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students will plot the track of hurricane Isadore and issue hurricane and tropical storm warnings.

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.
