Goal

The student will be able to learn about political and physical maps and be able to make one with 100% success. The will be able to utilize the globes to learn about continents and oceans of the world.  

 

What will be done with my students

We have been learning about the Earth along with the continents and oceans that exist within it. Each group will be assigned a continent and given a globe and then they will build their continent out of salt dough. Once the group has made their continent, it will dry overnight. The next day they will paint their continent with the different colors mentioned below to show a physical layout of their continent. For example, elevation peaks, rivers, hills, etc. Then once all is dry, we will have an overall classroom presentation.  

 

Benefits to my students

The students get a hands on learning experience which will enhance their learning ability and comprehension of maps and their purpose.  

 

Budget Narrative

The cost above includes the items we will need as they make a salt dough map of their continent and have the globes to use as a reference. Each group will get a mini globe and there will be one physical globe they can all use.
