This unit is perfect for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying landforms. Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. Then, students will be assigned a planet and a partner to work with. Students will have a Landform Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about the Earth's landforms system and their assigned landform.
Once students have completed their research, they will use it to complete two culminating activities: a report/presentation and a salt dough model of their landform. Finally, other classes and parents will be invited to the "Landform Fair" where your students can show off their cool landform!
