Greyson Weller, Connor Lubold, Emma Burkett, Ryleigh Davis and Kaitlyn Yates are shown with the project, that started with each student designing their own island with various landforms.

Students of Beth Wilson, a fifth-grade teacher at Greencastle-Antrim Elementary School, conducted a cross-curricular project to help them understand landforms while using reading, writing and math.

The project started with each student designing their own island with various landforms.

After designing it and drawing a map, students had to recreate it using clay and include information on climate and natural resources, a flag, and a name for their island.

After all the construction was done, students had to create a fake “post” for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Connor Lubold enjoyed the project because he said he enjoys projects that use his “creativity.”
