The overarching goal of this lesson is to teach students about the different landforms around the world. It is important for them to have a basic understanding of how land is formed as a result of different processes (tectonic plates, weathering, erosion, natural disasters, etc.). It also includes other resources students can visit to find out more about landforms.
Objectives: As a result of this lesson SWBAT:
• Identify different landforms such as plateaus, sand dunes, caves, canyons, and more.
• Explain how each of these landforms are formed.
• Create models of the earth’s common physical features and landforms.
