From the swamps of the Mississippi to the canyons of Arizona, landforms come in many different shapes and sizes. Each year, millions of tourists travel around the globe for a chance to view these incredible attractions. For this assignment, students choose a famous landscape to study and create a project to showcase their learning.
This resource guides students through conducting their own research report on a famous landform of the world (25 topics are listed). After choosing a topic to focus on, students are asked to conduct research using the Internet and books while following criteria. Next, students are asked to share their learning by creating a poster board, presentation board, power point presentation, or dodecahedron (Instructions and Pentagon Template included). A 3D model may also be constructed to further display learning. Finally, students present their work to the class.
Can be done in partners. Printable Evaluation forms included!

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students are challenged to actively learn about a subject for an extended period of time. It is a form of active learning or inquiry-based learning. Project-Based Learning is in contrast to paper-based, rote memorization, or teacher-led instruction that presents established facts.
