Name:Date:Student Exploration: Reading Topographic MapsDirections: Follow the instructions to go through the simulation. Respond to the questions and prompts in the orange boxes.Vocabulary:contour interval, contour line, depression contour, elevation, gradient, index contour, relief, topographic mapPrior Knowledge Questions (Do these BEFORE using the Gizmo.)A house sits on the side of a small hill near a lake. The elevation, or height, of each point above the lake is shown by the contour lineson the landscape below.1.Suppose it rained for a while, and the lake level rose up 5 meters. Would the house be safe? Explain.Yes because the house is about at 7m2.What would happen if the lake level rose 10 meters?The house would floodGizmo Warm-upA topographic mapis a map that contains contour lines to show elevation.Each contour line connects points that are at the same elevation. The ReadingTopographic Maps Gizmo allows you to see how a three-dimensionallandscape can be represented by a two-dimensional map. The controls at the top of the Gizmo allow you to manipulate the landscape onthe left and the map on the right. Try each tool:●With the Rotatetool selected, click and drag to turn the map orlandscape.●Select Zoom inand click the landscape several times. Then select Zoom out and click the landscape again to return it to its original size. ●Click the Add button, and then click several times on the landscape or map to add a hill. Then dig a hole using the Subtract tool.
