Every year, my students make 3D landform maps of the United States using candy and other types of food. I was a little nervous about it this year because of my large class size (almost 30!) and the fact that there is only one me. Well... I'm proud to say that I survived and my students absolutely loved this project! It was fun and they learned so much at the same time. To make the maps, my students referenced a map in their Social Studies book that showed them where all of the landforms are located in the US. We used hershey kisses for the mountains, mini marshmallows for the hills, brown rice for the desert, green sprinkles for the plains, twizzlers pull-n-peel for the rivers, and goldfish for the oceans.
