Kitchen Geography: Teaching landforms the fun way!
The base is a sweet Scone Dough. The kids used it like play dough. Following a picture from a favorite Science book, Miss K shaped an island complete with a peninsula, coastlines, bay, and a gulf. Using the last of the dough they made hills, rivers, canyon, plateaus and a mountain.
This is the finished product. At this point the kids were begging to eat it. However I was a mean mama and asked them to label it first.
If you want a tasty way for your kids to learn Geography (and a sweet treat to go with your coffee) give this project a try too!
