Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Making a Landform Model - Section 5: Elaboration

 

Many of my students had trouble dealing with proportions/scale.  This was a common problem in my classroom, and I imagine throughout most children at this age.  Next time I do this lesson, I will make sure to stress how the landforms need to be in proportion with the rest of the island.  For example, many students created one big mountain, instead of 5-6 that they had drawn on their map.  Knowing this misconception, I will change my instruction by including more instruction in this area.
