Dear President Mullins:
We are team maps. Our job is to make a map of Artrix. One thing we needed to know were the landforms on Artrix. They are mountains, valleys, volcanoes, plateaus , and peninsulas. We also learned that the tallest land form there is 2380 feet.The land is flat and rugged. There are rivers and flatlands by the rivers. The planet is 197 million square miles. There are many different kinds of natural resources. They are granite, water, trees and basalt. There may be oil and natural gas. These resources are scattered around the planet according to our scientists. We are making three maps: one with the landforms and the other two maps are a resource map and a physical map. On the eastern side of Artrix, there are 4 continents. Their names are Borado, Baidy, Talia, Sortia. We also talked to the settlers on the western side of Artrix and they said that there are four continents, too. Their names are Tempera, Delox, Dixon, and Marczone.

Sincerely,
Team Maps

Dear President Mullins,

We are the Map Committee from Mr. Cosand's 5th grade DreamExtreme class. There is an asteroid headed toward us and our Earth people will have to travel to a new planet that scientists discovered called Artrix. Our committee has to make a map so people know where to go on Artrix, what it is like there and what the names of the continents are.

Our scientists told us that Artrix is the second planet in its solar system and about 93 million miles away from its sun. There are two polar regions on Artrix in the north and the south.

The western hemisphere has coastal regions, evergreen forests, temperate rain forests, mountains, plains, plateaus, semi-deserts, wetland, meadows and valleys. Artrix also has mountains , valleys, cliffs, hills, inlets, bays, buttes, canyons, basins, rivers, lakes, oceans and dormant volcanoes. The highest elevation on western Artrix is 11,239 feet and the lowest is sea level. The average elevation is 3,297 feet.

Artrix is about 190 million square miles. The percentage of land on Artrix is 34% and the land has both bumpy and smooth land depending on the region. The land in the Western Hemisphere is mostly solid although it is different in different regions. It has 66% water.

We have four continents on the Western Hemisphere: Dixon, Delox, Tempera, and Marczone. On our map we have colored the continents green, white, brown, and aqua blue. Artrix's ocean is about the same size as Earth's ocean.


Sincerely,

The Map Committee
