I had the kids complete a Landform Dictionary. It had 13 pages with lots of space at the top for a picture and the bottom was the word with lines following it for the kids to write in the definition from their book. Some of the landforms we study are plain, coast, plateau, mountain, volcano, ocean, bay, stream, river, lake, peninsula, and valley. I used a rubric that had each page worth 5 points. 1-neatness (3rd grade work, no scribbling), 2-correct definition, and 2-correct picture. I gave them one point if they only had a partially correct definition or picture. Look out for the pictures of the peninsula as they look rather like a male body part! No offense meant to anyone out there. I had a few good laughs with that one when I first started doing this project.
The kids really loved doing the project.
