Description:

In this activity, students will become familiar with topographic maps and their uses, as well as developing an awareness of their local surroundings in terms of geographic and geological features. The activity is designed to use United States Geological Survey (USGS) 7.5-minute series maps, preferably one that shows the local school building. Using the map and a list of questions (provided), they will learn about scale, directions, contour interval, what the map colors stand for; calculating distances; and locating places.
