Jump into Japan's geography with a 3-D topographic map! Students will proudly display these models of Japan's mountainous islands and bodies of water.
Invite students, organized in small groups, to research the islands of Japan. Prior to beginning this task, have students pose several questions they would like answered during this investigation. Where they are located in the world? What are the country's natural resources? Significant landforms? Identify the largest four islands' shapes, names, and characteristics.
Once teams have completed their research, have each group use Crayola® Model Magic to create 3-dimensional scale models of Japan's islands. Show landforms such as mountains, rivers, and lakes. Allow to air-dry overnight.
Paint the islands and their geographic features with Crayola Washable Paint. Allow time for paint to dry.
Paint ocean waters surrounding the Japanese islands with Crayola Watercolors on a large sheet of paper. Suggest that students dampen paper first to try a wet-on-wet technique. Dry.
Student groups place their four islands on the water in their correct locations. Label the Sea of Japan, Pacific Ocean, and island names if you wish.
Display student artwork at prominent places throughout the school hallways. Students should write a summary of their Japan research to accompany their models.
