Salt Maps

The third graders finished off their year by making a Salt Dough Relief Map of the 48 contiguous states of the U.S.A. Each student assembled their dough at home and then applied it to their map at school. We painted and labeled our own map as true cartographers. Thank you to Mrs. Sego, Mrs.vanThorre,and Mrs. Brunick for your assistance in making this all possible.
