This site from SERC's Starting Point presents sample Gallery Walk questions for an activity about map reading. These questions encourage students to examine lines of latitude and longitude, read representative fractions, identify landforms on topographic maps, ways to use road, contour, bedrock, soil, satellite, and aerial maps, and how to critique maps. The questions are organized according to the cognitive level at which students are engaged, using Bloom's Taxonomy.
