Learn how islands are formed and build models of different kinds of islands to illustrate learning.
Using a world map, students identify islands that are in each continent on the planet. Pose the question: How were these islands formed?
Divide students into teams of 3 or 4 students. Student groups research various island formations and their history. Students organize their research into an electronic format for presentation to classmates.
Prior to presenting their findings, student groups use Crayola Model Magic to create 3-dimensional island models. Students may use recycled cardboard as a base for their island models. Encourage students to incorporate recycled collage materials in their models such as twigs, paper towel tubes, craft sticks, toothpicks, or cotton balls to form island features. Attach these items with Crayola School Glue. Allow model to dry overnight.
When the Model Magic is dry, cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Paint the island's land forms and bodies of water with Crayola Watercolor Paint or Tempera Paint and Brushes.
Choose names for the island as well as its parts, such as peninsulas, inlets, coves, basins, valleys, mountain ranges, and lakes. Make labels with Crayola Colored Pencils or Washable Markers.
