Product Description
This is one of my favorite 7th grade projects!! After learning about weathering, erosion, and deposition, the students have to make a model that shows landforms created by water and ice (glaciers). I count this as the test for the unit.

The file contains my day-by-day lesson plans for the project, the instructions for the kids (sample seen to the right) and the rubric I use (sample below).

The project requires few materials, which I require the students to bring in themselves: salt, flour, a surface to work on (like a board), an air-tight container, and cream of tartar (which is optional). I provide paint, paint brushes, labels, and glue.

The project takes me about a week. The kids build/paint for five days, and then I spend about 1.5 days talking with students on an individual basis about their models as the rest of the class watches Planet Earth: Fresh Water.

The kids do really neat things, and I always enjoy looking at their projects and “picking their brains” about why they placed a landform in a certain location, painted it a certain way, etc.

Please see the preview for screenshots of the info sheet and the rubric, as well as pictures of a project from a student of mine!
