This Landforms: Model and Presentation Project was a great activity for my fourth grade students at the end of our landform unit. It is also a great opportunity for your students to explore the Earth's major landforms by producing a landform model and a presentation report.
Students will work in groups to complete the following tasks:
Research the natural processes that create landforms;
Determine their locations on Earth;
Identify the natural resources and/or mineral ores that are found near landforms;
Analyze their importance to our understanding of our planet.
After completing research, the students work together to make a model of their landform. The students present their information on a tri-fold. A great project that combines geography and earth science. The package includes a 7-page PDF file. This file includes two teacher pages, four student project sheets, and a rubric. The second file is a Microsoft Word 97/2000 document (8 pages)that your students can use as a template for their presentation board information. You can save the file as a template or have the students save the file under another name.
