Site and Watershed Mapping.
Institute for Environmental Education, Cleveland, OH.
Presented as part of a larger unit on watershed investigations are a slideshow script and a map and compass unit intended to help high school students better visualize the relationship between a water sampling site, the entire stream, community, and watershed. The script discusses features of a topographical map, shows how to read one, and demonstrates several mapping exercises involving mapping tables, clinometers, photo maps, and topographical models. Part two elaborates on the topographical map information presented in the slideshow. Also discussed are compasses and how to use them. Several map and compass exercises are included. Appendices provide information for purchasing compasses and teaching aids. (DC)
