One of the teachers on my team did this project a few years ago and thought it might be a good way to assess our students understanding of landforms. Each student painted a thick, oval paper plate 1/2 blue and 1/2 green, and then made models of 9 different landforms out of modeling clay. We used gray, dark brown, light brown, red, royal blue, and green clay. Students cut the labels by folding and cutting index cards and then sticking them into each clay form. The flat green plate represented the flat plains, and the blue represented the ocean. I think they turned out great and the kids had SO much FUN making them!
