Changes Over Time: GIS Project

  1. 1. Changes Over Time Fourth Grade Project - Shields Elementary School! Cape Henlopen School District! Lewes, Delaware
  2. 2. Key Concepts Science - Land and Water ! •The flow of water and slope of the land affect erosion and depositon.! •Landforms, human activity and organisms can change the direction and flow of water.! Social Studies - Delaware History and Geography! •Use maps and other geo-graphics to interpret information about Delaware.! •Recognize •Describe 
 regions of Delaware defined by physical factors! how a region can change over time.

  3. 3. Geography Standard One: Students will develop a personal geographic framework, or "mental map," and understand the uses of maps and other geo-graphics [MAPS]. Geography Standard Two: Students will develop a knowledge of the ways humans modify and respond to the natural environment [ENVIRONMENT].
  4. 4. Natural Transition •Constructing Drawing an aerial view a model stream table
