Lesson Plan 1

 (Extension)

"EXPLORING OCEAN FEATURES"

 

Beyond/Extensions:

Have a topographical map of Catalina Island (or any topographical map of an area they know or will be visiting) and a list of features to identify. Have students identify valleys, mountains, hills, etc., on the topographical map. Or they can make their own list of formations that they can identify on the map.

Investigative thought question:
How can one tell if a feature on a topographic map is an incline or a decline? (Students should study a topographic map to find the answer)
