Urban Planning 101: Map Appreciation part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
This is a synthesis activity, providing closure to river and/or map units. Students will begin by looking at a series of maps, including 3D maps. They will brainstorm ways the natural world may interact with humans ...

Crate Lake Map Assignment part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
In earth science, map interpretation is probably the critical restriction curtailing students' ability to access and explore course concepts. Anaglyph maps are visualizations that present mapped data in a 3D ...

Mapping Potato Island part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
In this activity, students make a topographic map to describe the shape of a potato.

The Geography of Land Planning part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Students use simplified maps to plan towns, being conscious of water resources, and then learn how their town fits into the larger watershed.

Where's the volcanic threat? part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Students investigate Costa Rican volcanic hazards using (a) the amount of silica in volcanic rocks, (b) a highly-simplified geologic map and (c) a satellite image of Costa Rican night time illumination (i.e., human ...

The Quaternary Glacio-Fluvial History of the Upper Midwest Using Anaglyph Stereo Maps part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
Students examine the anaglyph stereo map (with red/cyan glasses) and use textures to generate a surficial geology map of the Upper Midwest. They can then interpret the textures in terms of landforms, geomorphic ...
