Thursday Homework:

Friday Homework

6th grade: We will finish the large picture as the homework Monday night, however you are welcome to work on it over the weekend so you have less homework next week.
7th grade: finish classwork (Read TB p. 68-72, complete handout started in class, both sides)

6th grade Answers:  p. 69: 1 & 2. latitude and longitude,   3. (map) legend, 4.  geologic (map), 5. geologic formations (or rock types, faults is not a complete enough answer to be correct), 6. topographic maps, 7. contour lines, 8. map view or plan view, 9. map legend, 10. latitude, 11. contour lines, 12. topographic, 13. geologic. 
p. 71 - 1. A, 2. C (some might say this is a topgraphic relief map however that is not a "view" used in maps), 3. A, 4. A, 5. B, 6. C, 7. CandD, 8. B (hint: contact is where different types of rock touch; if the rock has been broken, it is due to a fault; a depositional contact usually happens where a river ran through), 9. C (sort of D but it asks what it primarly shows).
p. 72-73- 1. B, 2, C, 3. C (D is too big), 4. C (has contour lines closest together), 5. C, 6. D (notice as it crosses the contour lines, the contour lines are pointing up hill), 7. A, 8. D, 9. B (regular geologic maps show rock layers just below the surface; topographic maps would show elevations not rock formations), 10. B (they say orientation so they're asking for the position of the coal below the surface, whcih means they want to know how deep the coal is below the surface), 11. C (have to go from the peak of the mountain when looking at the contour lines; bad map for two reasons: numbers are not directly on the contour ilnes making it difficult to read, and it gives the impression that geologic formations would be shown on a topographic map), 12. C.
