Directions for Making your Topographic Map


  • Mold your ball of clay into your mountain on the black board




  • Using the ruler, measure the (approximate) height of the mountain. Then draw a line around half, then each fourth, and if enough room, each eighth of the mountain.




  • Come ask us to check your mountain before getting a piece of dental floss!










  • Remove that layer and place the next layer up within the outline, matching up the orientation lines and draw its outline. Continue with each layer.




  • Assume the base of the mountain is at sea level. Label elevations to the remaining levels, keeping the interval constant.




  • Color your map! Be creative! You may include any features you want but label and include them in the key. Examples: rivers, lakes, campgrounds, forests, etc
