Assignment: Mapping Mystery Island Exploration Your job is to provide a map of the island that can be used by tourists. Use the clues and data below to produce an accurate map. 1. Aerial photographs show mountains along the east coast of the island at its highest point. The mountains range from 101 m to 2,000 m tall. Draw these mountains on the map and name them however you would like. 2. A geologist has provided information that a volcano in the mountains is extinct. This may be a great place for sightseeing. Place a volcano in the mountains. Name the volcano. 3. A river runs from the mountains at 147° W longitude, 28° S latitude and empties into a lake at 153° W longitude, 36° S latitude. The river then flows out to sea. Add the river and lake to the map and name them. 4. Field surveys show that a few flat areas along the west coast would be good for campgrounds. Draw them on the map. 5. Note that 5° of longitude or latitude equals about 563 km. Use this information and a ruler to create a scale to use with this map. Draw and label your scale next to the word Scale in the legend. 6. Select a name for this island based on its features. 7. Submit a scanned copy of your map as part of your assignment for grading. © K12 Inc. AV011413 © K12 Inc. AV011413 ...
