I am a huge believer in project based meaningful learning. This project integrates social studies, science, reading, writing, and art standards as students create a flipbook and map illustrating and explaining notable landforms in the United States. I've also included QR links to safe share video resources. To guide you and your students, included you will find informational text explaining oceans, mountains, plains, valleys, islands, plateaus, deltas, rivers, peninsulas, canyons, and volcanoes. The U.S. landforms represented are: Mississippi River, Rocky, Appalachian, Sierra Nevada, and Cascade mountain ranges, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Great Plains, and more! I also wrote a fun song to help cement students’ learning.
This project is sure to engage and excite your students and teach them a ton!
