3 Dimensional Island

Once, I was reading about several types of landforms and I thought of making an island craft. We had moved to a new home, so we had lots of thermocoles left. So, we used the thermocole to make an island. One thermocole had a deep circle hole in the middle and we thought it is a good idea to use it to make an island. For trees and bushes, I cut green construction paper. Initially it was difficult to cut the paper, later it became very easy. Since then, I started to get better in using scissors. Mom helped me to be safe when I  used scissors. I painted it with green for leaves and branches, brown for the tree trunk. 

I got the thermocole ready by painting green in the middle and blue for water, all around. Then, I pasted the trees and bushes in the middle. 


New Zealand is an island country. Hawaii is an island state. Australia is huge continent geographically, but as a land form, it can be considered as an island because it is fully surrounded by water. Cuba, Ireland and United Kingdom are islands.


Greenland is the largest island. An island that I have visited is SriRangam. It is a temple town situated in Trichy. SriRangam is surrounded by River Cauvery.

I am going to research and learn a lot about islands and other landforms. I like Geography so much. Have you made any models for land forms? If so, can you show me the models you made?
