What are different types of maps and how are they used?

EQ: How does one distinguish between the different types of maps? 7.3.spi.14. Distinguish between types of maps. (i.e., political, physical, climatic, land-use resource, contour, elevation, and topographic). Activating Strategy: Students will be asked to list 5 reasons they would need a map. Students will be asked how they know which one to use for different types of information. Which one should I look at to determine what resources an area has? Climate? Elevation?

Teaching Strategies: - Students will make a flipbook on the different types of maps and record notes from the PowerPoint. (Need 4 sheets of paper.) After we complete our notes on the first two maps, students will break up into teams and do a pair/share activity. - AP #1: Pair/Share: Describe a political map. When would you use a political map?" Describe a physical

map. Why would someone need to use a physical map?" - AP #2: A note to a student moving here from another country: "What kind of map would I look at to find out the weather in Tennessee?" "How would a topographical map help me find out if my new house is on a hill or in a valley? - AP #3: Compare and contrast with a Venn Diagram: How is a contour map similar and different from that of an elevation map?

- Students will complete the Maps Handout. Summarizing Strategy: Ticket Out the Door Students will number 1-11 on a sheet of paper and will be instructed to look at pictures from the last 11 slides of the Power point to determine whether each picture is political, physical, climatic, land-use resource, contour,

elevation, topographic, or a combination of more than one. Homework: Finish the Map Handout if not completed in class. Why do you use maps?

Think of 5 reasons that you would need a map (so I know where I am going is not an answer I want you to have on your list.) How do you distinguish between

different types of maps? SS. Standard: 7.3.spi.14. Distinguish between types of maps. (i.e., political, physical, climatic, land-use resource, contour, elevation, and topographic).

Political Maps Usually colored by country or by state Political colors make it easy to compare size, shape, and location Bold letters often make the country names

stand out Symbols make it easy to tell capitals from other cities Political maps also name certain physical features, such as rivers and lakes World Political Map

Physical Map Has colors that make natural patterns stand out The colors on the map can stand for types of vegetation, mountain, and natural

features Names of big natural features are easy to see Physical maps also include some political information, such as boundaries

World Physical Map Pair/Share 1s tell 2s Describe a political map.

When would you use a political map? 2s tell 1s Describe a

physical map. Why would someone need to use a physical map?

Climate Map The climate of a place is the weather it has season by season, year after year Rainfall and temperature are climates main ingredients

Climate is affected by elevation, distance from the ocean, and latitude World Climate Map Land Use Resource Map

These maps show how land is being used. This might refer to: vegetation crops being grown forest vs. Agriculture mines and wells

city zoning Topographic Map These maps generally represent a small area with a lot of detail. They show elevation with contour lines,

natural and man-made features. Topographic Map A new student is moving to Tennessee and is curious about a few things. Please write him a one

paragraph letter answering his questions. How would a What kind of topographical map would I look

map help me at to find out the find out if my weather in new house is on Tennessee?

a hill or in a valley? Contour lines represent the elevation at that

line. If you were to walk across a line, you are changing elevation.

Contour maps Contour map Elevation Maps Maps that

show elevation change by using color or shading.

Elevation Map What is the average elevation of most of our state?

Elevation Map of Tennessee Elevation Map Elevation Map

How is a contour map similar and different from that of an elevation map? Contour map Elevation map
