IN THIS ACTIVITY YOU WILL
  • Learn about the different types of landforms.
  • Create landforms with modeling clay.
  • Write a Four Square describing a landform of

LANDFORMS
  • Landforms are the kinds of land a place has.
  • Landforms include mountains, valleys, plateaus,
    deserts,plains, islands, and peninsulas.

5
MOUNTAINS
  • Mountains can be tall and sharply pointed like
    the Rocky Mountains.
  • Mountains can be lower and more rounded like the
    Appalachian Mountains.

6
VALLEYS
  • Valleys are lowlands that lie between mountain
    ranges.
  • They are often good places for communities
    because water runs down from the mountains and
    they have rich soil to grow crops.

7
PLATEAUS
  • Plateaus are landforms that have STEEP SIDES and
    a FLAT top.
  • They may stretch for miles in every direction.

8
DESERTS
  • A desert is dry land with few plants and little
    water.

9
ISLANDS
  • An island is a piece of land that has water on
    all sides.

10
PLAINS
  • The area of flat land along a sea or ocean is a
    coastal plain.
  • Plains are flat sometimes grassy lands that
    stretch for miles and can be good habitats for
    animals like zebras, lions, and elephants,
    giraffes.

11
PENINSULAS
  • A peninsula is a piece of land that has water on
    ONLY THREE sides and attached to another piece of
    land.
  • A good example of a peninsula is FLORIDA.

12
REVIEW OF LANDFORMS
  • MOUNTAINS High steep,rocky land
  • VALLEYS Low land in between mountains
  • PLATEAUSSteep, sloped land with a flat top
  • DESERTS Dry, sandy land
  • PLAINS Flat, grassy land that stretches for
    miles
  • ISLANDS Land surrounded by water
  • PENINSULASLand with water on 3 sides

CREATIVE ACTIVITY
  • Give a lump of modeling clay.
  • Allow students to mold and create each type of
    landform discussed. If needed go back through
    Power Point.

15
Writing Activity
  • Students will choose their favorite landform to
    write a Four Square assignment and present it to
    the class.
