Landform Projects

We had 2 days of school this week due to Thanksgiving, and Mrs. Delk's class spent their time working on landform projects.
Students completed 3 tasks:

1. Look up 3 landforms in the dictionary and write their definitions on index cards
2. Create landforms using play dough and paper plates
3. Paint landforms

Here are their creations!

The assignment:

2. Find and copy the definition of the landforms onto the appropriate flap
3. Add a picture of the landform

Check out these brilliant kids!

Science Power Points

Here are the power points our students will be using in science this week. I have encouraged my students to go through the power points during their computer lab time as well since there are Internet links in the power points that we didn't get to fully look through in class.

Feel free to check them out and download them at home to review!
