In this assignment, we will be exploring the variation of toponyms in different regions of the Americas. We will also explore how not all distances are equally distant. Finally, we will interpret the landscape using topographic maps of well-known national parks.
- Identify and explain locations in the Americas, where French, English, and Spanish toponyms are present today.
- Explain why the root language of toponyms in North America varies from region to region.
- Visualize and analyze variations in the time-space compression.
- Interpret landform features within topographic maps.
- Determine distances and scale from the map.
- Predict the implications of landforms for health and safety in recreation.
