Create Your Own Island Project
Introduction
You have stumbled upon an uncharted island in your explorations of the ocean. Your task is to
map, label, and name its major features and their locations.
Purpose
To create an island and draw common coastal and inland features.
Materials
Poster paper (provided in class)
Textbook (Chapter 10)
Globe
Colored pencils
Shoreline/Coastline Notes
Procedure
1. Choose the location for your island. Label on your map the ocean and the latitude and
longitude. Make sure your latitude and longitude do not overlap an existing landmass.
2. Draw, name, and label the island and each of its 20 features. The name must include the
feature (example Sugar Island, Leslie Lake, Shade Swamp, Smith Inlet).
3. Color the island, its features, and the surrounding ocean with colored pencils.
4. Feel free to add additional features (marsh, mountain, volcano, etc).
5. Somewhere on your project, include a description of how each of your coastal features
formed and indicate if it is part of a Primary Coast or Secondary Coast.
*Do not color your map with markers. You can only use markers to label your features.*
