Description

This landforms unit is perfect for students who are learning how to use informational text and studying landforms and bodies of water. It is a great landform activity for landform reports and more. Students can conduct traditional book and/or internet research.

Students will first learn how to use the text features in informational text including the table of contents and index. They will also learn how to find credible sources on the internet. Then, students will be assigned a landform or body of water to research(and optionally, a partner or group to work with). Students will have a Landforms Research Journal that they will use as a guide as they research about the landforms in general as well as their assigned landform. Editable sections have been added to the research journals so you may add your own questions!

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!

Contents:

  • Teacher Info Pages: This includes a sample unit outline, grading rubric, and lesson plans for internet research, intro lesson, research journals, and final projects.
  • Book research/ text features worksheets: Students will review other text features including: glossary, titles, headings, photos, captions, graphs/charts, and special print. They will also compare and contrast the table of contents and index.

    The hands on for this one looks like so much fun!!
    These units are designed to engage students and not just be printed work sheets. They are working, researching and getting their hands dirty at the same time! What I love most about the units, is the formats are all the same across themes. Your students become familiar with the structure and this makes the transitions so much easier.

    I love this website!!
    Thank you for all you do!
