Gotta Love Landforms

***This template is not my creation, therefore I can't share it. If you are interested, go to AIMS and purchase it. ***
I think it is worth $1!


I really love the landform unit. First we discuss the different landforms, look at pictures, and watch videos.





Next we make a flipbook that showcases a few of the landforms. We talk about the kinds of animals that can be found in and around each landform. As we discuss the animals, we look at some of the creature features from National Geographic.


Finally, we make a 3D model of landforms. We make flags to label our landforms. They stick their flags into their clay landforms before they dry. The next day we painted them. The kids were so excited and happy to do this project. It was a lot of fun!

This is very similar to the one that I do in my class, only differences is we put it on a brown lunch bag with half paper plate colored as the Earth on the very bottom.

Hi Mrs. Morris:). I write for an educational web site (www.kidworldcitizen.org) that has activities to increase global awareness. My kids just brought home a similar project from school, and I was going to post an article/pictures. I always like to ask and credit the original artist/teacher:)- can I credit you/link back to your site? I won't take your pictures, as I already have some photos of my kids' project. I am at kidworldcitizen (at) gmail (dot) com. Happy teaching:).
