South Carolina Maps and Aerial Photographic Systems (SC Maps) Teaching Manual.
Cain, Peggy W.; And Others
South Carolina has mountain chains, monadnocks, rolling hills, varying drainage patterns, rivers, a delta, barrier islands, rocks over a billion years old and land that was once part of another continent. This document contains a set of curriculum activities that have been developed from a diverse collection of aerial photographic, satellite, topographic, and special purpose mapping products available through a variety of sources. The maps were carefully chosen to provide spatial perspectives through a variety of map scales featuring geologic features in each of the state's five landform regions, namely, the Blue Ridge, Piedmont, Sandhills, Coastal Plain, and Coastal Zone. Within each of the landform regions, one or more individual study sites have been selected for detailed student activities. The lesson plan for each study site contains the following components: (1) "Power Thinking," a scenario designed to focus students' awareness of the region; (2) "Rationale"; (3) "Instructional Objectives"; (4) "Materials"; (5) "Background Information"; (6) "Activities"; (7) "Enrichment Activities"; (8) "Places to Visit"; and (9) "Reference and Resources." Sources of the various types of maps referred to in the units are listed. (CW)
