Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Exploring Elevation Maps


This lesson focuses on the use of elevation maps with a focus on Michigan’s Muskegon River Watershed. Students are introduced to an elevation profile tool and expected to produce a profile of two other Michigan rivers and examine their watersheds. Success with this lesson will include drawing a simplified profile of one of the rivers as well as labeling two watershed boundaries and the river.
