Landforms: Cut-out Art for Kids

Collage cut-out landforms on the paper

We started learning about the landform when my son was in 2nd grade, and it was not easy for us to understand. It might be easier to memorize them all. However, we have never been to most of them, and it was tough for us to picture them. So we read books, watched videos, and did some hands-on activities repeatedly to be familiar with the landforms.

We might have needed more practice to understand each type of landform, but he challenged very well, and he had so much fun doing this art project!
