Physiographic Maps of the United States
These two shaded relief maps of the United States allow students to observe the differences in texture of the various areas, bearing in mind the concept of physiographic province, a region where the topographic features share common characteristics (and similar texture). The first map, in color, clearly shows the provinces, even though they are not named, as differences in texture. The second map is labelled with the names of the physiographic provinces and some geologic features, allowing students to check their observations against the first, unlabelled map.
