I Love Teaching Landforms!

I copied landform maps from worldatlas.com and laminated them. I let the kids compare the landforms from each map on a double bubble map (Venn Diagram).

I had the kids to create songs to the tune of Are You Sleeping?
I'm a mountain, I'm a mountain
yes I am yes I am
very tall with snow on top
very tall with snow on top
points on top, points on top

I showed them photographs of me and asked them which landform I'm standing near. I've also used the pictures from calendars. When I use the pictures from calendars we predict which part of the U.S. the picture was probably taken.

I participate in a postcard exchange and have them predict which state it came from based on the landforms in the picture on the card (if there are any).

Just recently I red a story about a Redwood forest (can't think of the exact title) and we sang the song This Land is Your Land. We found all the landforms mentioned in the song on a map and marked them.
