I am a 1st grade teacher in Texas. We also study landforms. We make land forms using a salt dough mixture. Three cups water, Three cups salt, six cups flour. Mix and make formations. We also sometimes go into the sandbox on the playground and make the desert landforms- sand dunes, mesas, buttes, chimmney rocks, etc. We also make a layered book ( students stagger 3 pieces of construction paper a few inches apart on top of one another. Fold in half and staple. Have students write name of formation and draw picture. Lift flap and write definition. Hope this helps.
