QUIZ ON FRIDAY
Mount Capulin Activity
V: 2
1. Place the plastic model in the clear plastic box.
2. Tape the transparency sheet to the top of the box so that you
still have room on one end of the box to pour water in.
3. Fill the plastic box with water up to the 1 cm mark.
4. Using a marker, carefully trace where the water makes contact
with the model.
5. Fill the plastic box to the 2 cm mark and trace where the
water makes contact with the model.
6. Repeat this procedure until the lines have been drawn at each
water level and the model is completely submerged.
Mount Capulin Activity
V: 1
Transfer the topographic map to white sheet of paper by placing
the transparency behind the white paper and tracing it.
Title your map “Mt. Capulin”. Then tape it in your INB.
Mount Capulin Activity
V: 1
Calculate the elevations for each contour line and add these to
your topographic map.
1 cm = 250 ft.
Altitude at the bottom of the box (the base of the volcano) is
6,280 feet.
0 cm = 6,280 ft
1 cm = 6280 ft + 250 ft = 6530 ft

ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN YOUR INB:
1. Describe the general shape of the contour lines when you are
mapping a hill or a mountain. Use specific examples from our
topographic map in your answer.
2. What is the relationship between the closeness of the lines
and the steepness of the slope?
3. Would it be possible to distinguish a basin (an area of land
that is lower at the center than it is at the edges) or a
depression (an area that is lower than its surroundings) from
a mountain on a topographic map? How would you show
this?
