We’ve been having a blast exploring the world of map skills and geography. Recently, we made some map vocabulary flash cards. We were using them one afternoon when Leo suggested that we make our own landforms using some of our homemade play dough. I thought it was an excellent hands-on learning activity for young hands, and we quickly got to work.
