Cookie Topography

Students construct a cross section diagram showing elevation changes on a "cookie island." Using a chocolate chip cookie for an island, they locate the highest point in centimeters on the cookie and create a scale in feet. After tracing the outline of the cookie on paper, they determine contour lines, landforms, and the best location to build a house.
