Landforms sculpture

Your students will enjoy making all of the landforms that they learn about on this sculpture.  Cook up some clay (recipe to follow) and shape it onto a cardboard square.  After the landforms have dried, the students paint it using watercolors and then add on the paper labels.  The sculpture has cave, volcano, plateau,  mesa, desert, beach, grassland, valley, and mountain range.

Stove-Top Play Dough

1 c. flour

1 c. water

¼ c. salt

1 tbsp. oil (cooking or baby oil)

2 tbsp. cream of tartar

Mix ingredients in a saucepan.  Cook and stir over medium heat until it’s just like play dough (not gooey).  Let cool and store in a zip-lock bag.
