/Science Project: Landforms and Bodies of Water

Grade 3

Science Project: Landforms and Bodies of Water

We have started a new unit in science on landforms and bodies of water. The students will be making a model at home with a partner(s). They will be bringing it completed back to class to present it to the other students. Once they have all done their presentation, their models will be put on display.

The model needs to be made in a shoebox or a pizza box. It will need to have 3 different landforms and 3 different bodies of water from the ones that we have been studying in class. Each landform and body of water needs to be identified. They can decide how they want to do this.  They have free range on the materials they use to make the different landforms and bodies of water, as long as they make them. Please remember that they will need to transport their model back to school.

They will have 2 weeks to make their model. The date to bring it back to class completed and ready for their presentation is Monday, February 25th.

I have attached a few website links for ideas on how they can make them. These are only ideas. Which landforms and bodies of water they choose, and how they decide to make them, is their decision.
