                 Preview: Making a Mental Map of the Region
Look at the outline map of Monsoon Asia on the next page. Add a compass
rose to the map, showing where north, south, east, and west are. Then draw
or shade and label these features where you think they are located:
• the equator
• the other regions and bodies of water that lie to the north, south, east,
   and west
• the missing islands of Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Japan
• the area(s) that have a tropical wet climate
• the area(s) that have a dry (arid or semiarid) climate
• the area(s) that have the greatest population
• the area(s) that have the least population

Challenge 1: Learning About the Physical Geography
of Monsoon Asia
1 Place students in pairs. Have students work in these pairs throughout the
  Mapping Lab.
2 Explain the purpose of Challenge 1. Tell students that in Challenge 1 they
  will get an overview of the physical geography of Monsoon Asia. They will
  label a physical map of the region and will read about and identify key
  characteristics of the region’s physical geography.
3 Have students complete Challenge 1. Distribute the Challenge 1 Student             Visual 1
  Handout (or have students turn to the Challenge 1 map in their Interac-
  tive Student Notebooks). Project a transparency of the Challenge 1 Student
  Directions and review the steps with students. (Note: If this is students’ first
  Mapping Lab, consider completing all the steps as a class for a single physi-
  cal feature, such as the Bay of Bengal. Then give pairs time to complete the
  challenge, or give students a copy of the Student Directions and have them
  complete Challenge 1 for homework.)
    Here are some tips for executing Challenge 1 effectively:
    • Project Monsoon Asia Visual 1, the physical features map. Assign each pair
      a different physical feature from the list to start with.
    • Circulate to spot-check students’ work. Use the Guide to Student Handout
                                                                                     Visual 6
      for Challenge 1 to check answers.
    • Consider reviewing answers as a class. Have volunteers label each physical
      feature on a transparency of the Challenge 1 map as the class checks their
      answers.
4 Help students make connections between information about the region’s
  physical geography and details on thematic maps.
    • Have students read “Introducing the Region: Physical Geography” through
      the “Physical Features” subsection in Geography Alive! Regions and People.
    • Project Visual 1 and overlay a transparency of Monsoon Asia Visual 6, the
      political boundaries map. Ask students to find two or more sentences with
      information that is graphically represented on the map. For example, if        Visual 2
      students read, “Mountains are the most commanding feature of Monsoon
      Asia’s landscape,” they might identify major mountain ranges, such as the
      Himalayas and Kunlun Shan, on the physical features map.
    • Ask several pairs to come up to the map. Have one partner read the sen-
      tence to the class while the other points out the visual detail on the map
      that represents that information.
    • Repeat this process with the “Climate” subsection of the text and Monsoon
      Asia Visual 2, the climate zones map; and finally with the “Vegetation”
      subsection of the text and Monsoon Asia Visual 3, the vegetation zones
      map. Overlay a transparency of Visual 6 when you project each map.

              Challenge 1: Learning About the Physical Geography
                               of Monsoon Asia
1. Get your physical features map for Monsoon Asia Mapping Lab,
   Challenge 1.
2. Select one of the physical features listed below. Find it on a physical
   map of Monsoon Asia in Geography Alive! Regions and People.
3. Locate and label that feature on your physical features map. (If there
   is no room to write your label, draw a line from the feature to a place
   where you have more room to write.)
4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you have found and labeled all 15 physical
   features.

Challenge 2: Learning About the Human Geography
of Monsoon Asia
1 Explain the purpose of Challenge 2. Tell students that in Challenge 2 they
  will get an overview of the human geography of Monsoon Asia. They will
  complete a political map and identify key characteristics of the region’s
  human geography.
2 Have students complete Challenge 2. Distribute the Challenge 2 Student
  Handout (or have students turn to the Challenge 2 map in their Interactive
  Student Notebooks). Project a transparency of the Challenge 2 Student
  Directions and review the steps with students. (Note: If this is students’ first
  Mapping Lab, consider completing all the steps as a class for a single country,
  such as Bangladesh. Then give pairs time to complete the challenge. Alterna-
  tively, give students a copy of the Student Directions and have them complete
  Challenge 2 for homework.)
     Here are some tips for executing Challenge 2 effectively:
     • Project Monsoon Asia Visual 6, the political boundaries map. Assign each
                                                                                     Visual 6
       pair a different country to start with.
     • Circulate to spot-check students’ work. Use the Guide to Student Handout
       for Challenge 2 to check answers.
     • Consider reviewing answers as a class. Have volunteers label each country
       on a transparency of the Challenge 2 map as the class checks their answers.
3 Help students make connections between information about the region’s
  human geography and details on thematic maps.
     • Have students read “Introducing the Region: Human Geography” through
       the “Population” subsection in Geography Alive! Regions and People.
     • Project Monsoon Asia Visual 4, the population density map, and overlay a
       transparency of Visual 6. Ask students to find two or more pieces of          Visual 4
       information from the text that are graphically represented on the map. For
       example, if they read, “With so many people, it is no surprise that some of
       the world’s largest and most crowded cities are found in Monsoon Asia,”
       they might locate and identify urban centers such as Mumbai, Shanghai,
       and Tokyo.
     • Ask several pairs to come up to the map. Have one partner read the sen-
       tence to the class while the other points out the visual detail on the map
       that represents that information.
     • Repeat this process with the “Economic Activity” subsection of the text
       and Monsoon Asia Visual 5, the economic activity map. Remember to over-
       lay a transparency of Visual 6.
                                                                                     Visual 5

Challenge 3: Using Geography Skills to Answer “Where?”
1 Prepare materials and Mapping Lab research stations for Challenge 3. Cut
  apart two (or more) copies of the Challenge 3 cards and three copies of the
  Challenge 3 station labels. Set up three identical research stations along three
  walls of the classroom. On each wall, place one set of Placards 1–5. Tape the
  appropriate station label above each placard. Finally, place a transparency pen
  next to each placard, using a different color pen for each placard map. (Note:
  You will use these same research stations for Challenges 4 and 5.)
2 Explain the purpose of Challenge 3. Tell students that in Challenge 3 they
  will learn about aspects of the physical and human geography of Monsoon
  Asia by analyzing thematic maps and simulating basic GIS map-reading skills
  to answer a series of questions.
3 Have students complete Challenge 3. Distribute the Challenge 3 Student
  Handout (or have students turn to the Challenge 3 matrix in their Interactive      Placards 1–5
  Student Notebooks). Project a transparency of the Challenge 3 Student
  Directions and review the steps with students. Distribute one transparency
  of Monsoon Asia Visual 6 to each pair of students.
     Here are some tips for executing Challenge 3 effectively:
     • Project Monsoon Asia Visuals 1–5 one at a time, and give pairs time to
       discuss the questions. Have volunteers share their answers.
     • Divide pairs into three large groups. Assign each group to work at a
       research station at a different wall of the classroom.
     • Remind students to write their answers in complete sentences that restate
       the question.
     • Use the Guide to Student Handout for Challenge 3 to check students’ work.
       Consider reviewing the answers as a class.
                                                                                     Visuals 1–5

         Challenge 3: Using Geography Skills to Answer “Where?”
1. Look carefully at each map your teacher projects. For each map, discuss
   the three questions below with you partner. Be prepared to share your
   answers with the class.
   • What are at least five key symbols or colors on the map? What does
     each symbol or color represent?
   • What key information does this map show?
   • Is this information about physical geography or human geography?
2. Get a transparency of Monsoon Asia Visual 6 and a Challenge 3 card
   from your teacher.
3. Read the question on your card. Scan the labels of the maps at your
   assigned research station to determine which map you need in order to
   answer the question.
4. Go to that map. Lay your transparency on top of the map. Use a trans-
   parency pen to note any information or locations on your transparency
   that will help answer the question.
5. Once you have all the information you need to answer the question,
   return to your desk. Get your matrix for Monsoon Asia Mapping Lab,
   Challenge 3. Find the row with the number that matches your question.
   Circle the name of the map you used to find your answer. Write the
   answer in a complete sentence. For example:
   Question: What mountain range is located between India and China?
   Answer: The Himalayas are located between India and China.
6. Take your Challenge 3 matrix to your teacher. If your answer is correct,
   clean off your transparency, get a new card, and repeat Steps 3–6.

                  This person could be writing a travel guide for Japan. Japan’s climate is humid continental and
                  humid subtropical, which would be neither too dry nor too wet. Tokyo, the capital, has more than
                  8 million people. Japan has both mixed forests and coniferous forests. Finally, Japan is entirely
                  made up of islands.

Challenge 5: Using Maps to Analyze a Field Photograph
1 Prepare for Challenge 5. Set up the same research stations as in Challenges 3
  and 4. Distribute one transparency of Monsoon Asia Visual 6 to each pair of
  students.
2 Explain the purpose of Challenge 5. Tell students that in Challenge 5 they
  will use the thematic maps at their assigned stations to help them analyze a
  field photograph. In the process, they will use many of the steps in the geo-
  graphic inquiry process.
3 Have students complete Challenge 5. Distribute the two Challenge 5 Student
  Handouts (or have students turn to the Challenge 5 pages in their Interactive
  Student Notebooks). Project a transparency of the Challenge 5 Student Direc-       Visual 6
  tions and review the steps with students. Then project Monsoon Asia Visual 7,
  the field photograph.
   Here are some tips for executing Challenge 5 effectively:
   • As students begin, confirm that all pairs have marked the correct coordi-
     nates on their transparency of Visual 6. Depending on your class, you may
     want to simplify the challenge by eliminating one of the incorrect locations.
   • Model for students where in their Challenge 5 notes they should record the
     information they will acquire from the maps at the research stations. To
     make this part of the challenge fun and game-like, give students a limited
     amount of time (approximately 10 minutes) to acquire information from
     the research stations.                                                          Visual 7
   • Give students sufficient time (6 to 8 minutes) to carefully analyze their
     information and select the location they think best matches the field photo-
     graph. For their supporting-evidence statements, emphasize that students
     must connect information from the maps to a concrete detail—something
     they could actually see or touch if they were there—in the photograph.
     Offer a couple of examples of concrete details.
   • To conclude the activity, ask volunteers to share which location they think
     corresponds to the field photograph. For each suggestion, ask another
     volunteer to share a supporting-evidence statement. Make sure each state-
     ment connects information from one of the maps to a concrete detail in
     the photograph. Finally, project a transparency of Guide to Challenge 5
     Student Handouts. Reveal the correct location of the photograph, and then
     reveal the supporting-evidence statements, one at a time.

           Challenge 5: Using Maps to Analyze a Field Photograph
1. Get your copy of the two pages for Monsoon Asia Mapping Lab, Chal-
   lenge 5. Also get a transparency of Monsoon Asia Visual 6.
2. Find the coordinates for the three locations given in the Challenge 5
   matrix (Locations A, B, and C). Carefully mark and label those exact
   locations on your transparency.
3. When your teacher tells you, quickly visit the thematic maps at your
   research station. Lay your transparency over the maps. Write as much
   information as possible about the three locations in the corresponding
   sections of the Challenge 5 matrix.
4. With your partner, carefully analyze the information in your notes and
   details from the field photograph. Figure out which location (A, B, or C)
   best matches the photograph.
5. Support your choice by completing the supporting-evidence statements.
   In each statement, connect information from one of the maps about the
   location you chose to a visual detail from the photograph. Be ready to
   share your statements out loud.
     Example of a supporting-evidence statement:
     From the population density map, we learned that this location is very
     close to a city of over 8 million people. In the field photograph, we see
     hundreds of people on a crowded city sidewalk.

We think the field photograph best matches Location _______ .

Supporting-evidence statements:

              physical features
1. From the _______________________ map, we learned that this location is on flat land near the
   Indian Ocean.


     In the field photograph, we see flooding that could happen on flat land along the coast.




              climate zones
2. From the _______________________ map, we learned that this location has either a tropical wet or a
     tropical wet and dry climate.


     In the field photograph, we see flooding and people wearing raincoats and carrying umbrellas, which is
     appropriate for a tropical wet season.



              population density
3. From the _______________________ map, we learned that this location has a high population density
     and is located in or near the urban center of Mumbai, India.


     In the field photograph, we see many people, as well as trucks and buses, which are commonly found in
     urban centers.



              economic activity
4. From the _______________________ map, we learned that this location has trade and manufacturing.
     Another possible answer: From the vegetation zones map, we learned that this location is in a broadleaf
     evergreen forest vegetation zone.
     In the field photograph, we see a truck that could be transporting manufactured and trade goods, and a man
     pushing a delivery cart that could serve the same purpose on a smaller scale. Another possible answer: In the
     field photograph, we see a bit of thick, green, broadleaf vegetation in the background.

Processing
Have students revisit their mental maps from the Preview by following these steps:
• Use one color to highlight or circle three or more details on their mental maps
  that were correct or fairly accurate.
• Use another color to highlight or circle three or more details that were incor-
  rect or inaccurate. Redraw or relabel those items to make them correct or
  more accurate.
• Use a third color to draw and label three or more new items. At least one item
  should represent information about physical geography, and at least one should
  represent information about human geography.
Alternatively, have students complete the Preview assignment again on a separate
sheet of paper and then compare the two mental maps. Have them identify three
things that are the same or similar between the two maps, three that are correct
or more accurate on the second map, and three new pieces of information on the
second map. This Processing activity is a great review for the assessment.
