Monkey Puzzle Make Contour Maps!! 16.11.2020

Monkey Puzzle began to create their 3D contour maps of Alchemy Island today.

They began exploring contour lines by understanding that they are a map’s way of showing you how high the land is. The children also learnt that contour lines join together places of the same height and form patterns that help us to imagine what them and actually looks like.

We looked at Naismith’s rule to remind us that the closer together the contour lines are, the steeper the land.
