Student Guide
Assignment Summary
For this assignment, you will construct a model of landform regions in an area of your choice. You will find
a relief map online of the area, then construct your model based on the outline and the landform features
on the map. You will color code the different landforms and their relative elevations. Once you have
completed your model, you will write two paragraphs describing the different landform regions of the area
you chose.
Background Information
Topography is the shape of the land, including the elevation, relief, and landforms that make up the area.
Elevation shows the height above sea level. Relief is the difference between the highest and lowest part
of an area. Landforms are features of the land, such as oceans, rivers, mountains, plains, hills, and
plateaus. Landform regions are large areas of land where the topography is mainly the same type of
landform.
