The American Educational 3021 contour model kit is used for topographical study, and is designed for developing student understanding of contour lines and the forces that impact their shapes and patterns. The kit features a contour transformation activity for turning a three-dimensional mountain replica of Mount Capulin, a steep-sided volcano located in New Mexico, into a two-dimensional topographical map. The 3021 has five kits, each containing a clear, plastic box with lid, built-in mountain replica, metric ruler, marking pencil, and detailed instructions, for hands-on learning. The kit is suitable for grades 4 to 12 and ages 9 to 18.
