The students will learn about the different landforms that are found in the world.
1. Pictures of landforms-valley, mountain, hill, platuea, flatland. 2. Play-doh
The students will be able to: 1. Name the different types of landforms-valley, mountain, hill, platuea, flatland-by looking at a picture. 2. Construct the landforms when instructed by the teacher.
1. The teacher will introduce each landform and show a picture to the students. 2. The students will then construct each landform with Play-doh to try to match the picture. -The teacher might have to change the name of the landforms, such as valley to holler, to get the students first familar with the landforms at first. 3. The students will then practice making the landforms with the Play-doh by just looking at the names of the landforms.
A lesson extension idea would be to have the students write about what landforms that they have seen or want to see. Another lesson extension would be to have the students create a book talking about each landform to have at family night for the parents/guardians to read.
The students will be assess by the teacher in two ways. 1. The teacher will say the name of the landform and the students will make it out of Play-doh. The teacher will write down on an observation sheet. 2. The students will look at a picture and will have to name the landform to the teacher.
