Landforms Lesson Ideas and Activities NGSS 2-ESS2-2

The NGSS 2nd grade standards state that students should learn to identify landforms and bodies of water and to create a model to represent them.

NGSS 2-ESS2-2
Develop a model to represent the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in an area. 

One of my favorite things to do after teaching students to identify a few landforms is to have them make a model using play-doh 
crayons, markers, paper, toothpicks and post-it notes. Students are instructed to make an imaginary land with as many landforms as they can think of. 

I like to have students do some reading of nonfiction about landforms. 

The students really enjoy putting together this cute layered book.
Next, I have students practice with some landform puzzle matching games.
 I like to follow this with some writing activities in the interactive notebook.
