Landforms

 
Third Grade

 

We are going to choose from the landforms listed in the poem to create a Power Point. After we have selected our landforms, we will use the links to find pictures of each landform.

"Landforms"

When you look at surface of Earth you'll agree
That landforms are interesting features to see
Almost all involve water to some degree
Or from geological activity.

See if you can figure out these landform riddles:

What kind of landform has a vent at the top,
Spews lava and steam and pieces of rock?
VOLCANO

What kind of landform has very steep sides
That were cut by a river's erosion and time?
CANYON

Going over this landform will make you shiver.
It occurs when there's a sharp drop off in a river.
WATERFALL

You get to this landform when oceans run dry.
They're broad, flat spaces under the sky.
PLAINS

What kind of landform is tallest of all
With a spiky top where snow may fall?
MOUNTAINS

What kind of landform always runs downhill
And can be used to turn turbines that power a mill?
RIVER

Landforms like this are often times found
In the side of a mountain or as a hole in the ground.
CAVE

What kind of landform is a huge chunk of water
That takes up three-fourths of the Earth, and is salty?
OCEAN

This landform is found at the bottom of mountains
And very tall hills; it's the low land between them.
VALLEY

To get to this landform, a boat you may ride
Since water surrounds it on every side.
ISLAND

Triangle-shaped landforms like this often sit
Near the ocean where a river finally runs into it.
DELTA

Which type of landform stretches into the tides;
Surrounded by water on three of its sides?
PENINSULA

This large body of water is surrounded by land.
It's a great place to fish and swim, if you can.
LAKE

When the wind and the rain wear a mountain away,
The mound that is left is this landform, they say.
HILL

Which type of landform is just one of seven?
It's a really big place split up into nations.
CONTINENTS

When you look at surface of Earth you'll agree
That landforms are interesting features to see
There are many more out there that you'll want to know
Like mesa and harbor, gulf and plateau,
Fault, fjord and an Archipelago
