Two weeks ago, the third grade classes from Merriwether Elementary School completed a landform project for their science class.
All the third-graders put their creative and innovative minds to work and turned in some fantastic projects.
The students were each given a landform topic such as an island or peninsula, and were required to research their particular landform to create a model of that landform using any materials accessible to them.
The students were resourceful and used everyday objects to create their landform. They worked hard to turn in some amazing projects that helped them grasp a better understanding of all the different landforms in the world.
After creating their own three-dimensional landform, the students had to explain in a paragraph what would be found in or around their landform.
The day the project was due, students came in extremely enthusiastic about their wonderful projects and all the hard work they put into them.
This project was a great way to assess the students’ knowledge about their assigned landform.
