I purchased these great packets from TPT. Click on the images to view and purchase.
Using graphic organizers from Landforms for Young Globetrotters, the social studies text book, books from the library, and the computer students identified and defined landforms.
This FREE activity from TPT was a fun way for students to learn about map keys. Students used various copies of maps and images of maps on the internet to investigate map scales and cardinal directions.
Then it was time for students to demonstrate their learning by creating 3-D landform maps. Students used the internet to find landforms in the US so they could locate them properly on their maps. They also created a map key.
