Edible Landforms

In social studies last week, we ended our landform unit by making edible landforms. Each student used a graham cracker for a base and materials such as frosting, chocolate chips, Hershey Kisses, green gumdrops, red licorice, and green coconut to complete the task.

Students had to show at least one body of water (river, lake, ocean, etc.) and two different types of land (hills, mountains, plains, plateau, etc.). After that, each student created a map of his/her project. Maps had to include a title, a compass rose, and a map key. The map had to display a strong likeness to the original project. We all had a great time, and everyone's creation was so different!
