Art Activities for Landforms??

Hello,

I have researched and seen a lot of different art activities for a science unit on landforms. Some involve dough, paper mache', etc. I was wondering if anyone has tried any of these before. I'm looking for tips and resources!

Thanks!

I have made salt dough maps, they really need to be made on strong support system, such as a strong board. Kids painted them with water color
I have seen/heard of making maps with food items such as shredded wheat (plains)chewed gum (mts) blue fruit roll ups water toothpicks

I bought the edible landforms last year from Teacher's Clubhouse. I did not try it as I had trouble locating some of the food items in my area. Maybe I'll try it this year.

Haven't visited for awhile so on my snowdays I thought I'd check in.
I teach 4th grade Soc.St. and we start the year with reading maps and learning geographical landforms. At the end of the chapters each student makes a box lid (preferably soda can or veg. can box tray from the grocer) landform model. They can use the Model Magic? (Crayola brand) or I give out the salt dough recipe for those who want to get their hands messy! I require at least 5 easily identified landforms with labels. I ask that they be made at home and brought to school for painting. I used to have them bring the salt and flour to school and we made our own dough but got wise and now we just do the painting! The kids love it and they turn out great!
