my son has a project on Georgia's Landforms, I don't know wht to do or where to start. Will you please give my an example on what I can do. They are allowed to use shoe boxes, styrofoam balls, cardboard boxes, clay play dough, popsicle sticks, tissue and paper towel tubes.
There are ideas in here:
Let us know what you find that looks interesting.
I suggest your son use this map to model the base of the project. To show which areas are higher than others, you could use playdough or other clay. Wadded up tissues or other paper and glue could also be used to show mountains.
I advise you to start with heavy corrugated paper or even plywood or a piece of panelling for the base. A flimsier base won't adequately support the glue and other materials you use. You might even paint each section after you're finished. Label the different areas or use a color-coded map key.
