Relief Maps

Summers-Knoll received a donation of 2 boxes of relief maps. There were enough maps that every classroom had several maps to look at. The children were excited to find places they knew.  

Imogen used the maps for a  French lesson.   The children learned about plateaus, among many other things.

                                                                                               Friday the children made salt clay and used it to make their own relief maps.  They formed islands, volcanos, and mountains.

Today, the children painted their relief maps. Very impressive.

Another map project was a collaborative effort.  The map started a a 2-dimensional map but quickly transformed into a 3-D city.
