I'm teaching the Earth Science kids how to read a topographic map. Today, they made their own modeling clay and learned how to use contour intervals to reconstruct elevation gains on Earth's landforms. We started with this map...

...and ended with this partially completed model. One more class period and we should have a 3-D volcanic island created from a
1-D map picture. Fun times!
