Contour Modelling
I sued this resource with a Standard Grade class new to OS map work and who were stuggling to grasp the concept of contour lines. I drew a series of contour lines onto paper which were then photocopied (you can use actual OS maps if they are going spare). it was then up to the pupils to create the contour model. I had created my own model to show those pupils who were struggling to get the concept of the task. All in all it was a very enjoyable lesson and I can now say they ahve grasped the idea of contour lines.
