Travel Time Curve
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Students use their reference tables to answer questions regarding earthquake epicenters and time of origin.

Lab - Shoebox Topo Map
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
In this investigation you will work with an elevation field model (the island in the shoe box.) Often, it is helpful to represent a three-dimensional feature on a two-dimensional map.

Volcano In A Shoebox
Date Submitted: 2005-09-01
Volcano in a shoe box my version. The removal of the lines is always a problem. If you use crayon on the model, it's easier to remove than anything else. Dry off the model. Then using a DRY paper towel, and a little elbow grease, the lines come off.

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.
