Making South America!

As part of our Chocolate topic, we’ve been locating where cocoa beans are grown and finding out about rainforests. This week, we used salt dough to make a map of South America. By using different maps to help us, we carefully shaped the dough and marked out the country borders. Then we labelled the countries, checking our maps to ensure we’d correctly located them.

Finally, we had to read the maps closely in order to help us find some of South America’s physical features. This helped us to mark out the rivers and create the mountains for our salt dough map.

Take a look at these photos of us hard at work!
