Edible Landforms and More

Have food = Will Learn

My class does this edible model of landforms every year.
We start with a graham cracker base.
Cover 3/4 with brown icing and 1/4 with blue icing.

Use various food items to represent landforms:

Brown M&M for an island
Blue M&M for a lake
SnowCap candies for mountains
Fudge Graham cookies split into pieces to form a canyon. Then use blue sprinkles to show a river between the canyon
Wafter type cookie for a plateau
Coconut colored green with food coloring for showing the plains

I also mix in some landform videos and songs I've found online

Find more great ideas on my Pinterest page or TPT store


  1. Love this idea! Saving it to my social studies folder. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for following us! We don't teach Science but I am forwarding this to our Science teacher...she will love it. How fun! Makes me think of other things I can do with food in SS. Thanks!!!

  3. I love the edible landforms! That looks like even more fun than the imaginary land maps we draw. Thanks for the idea; I pinned your project!

    1. Thanks. A little food goes a long way to motivate learning :)
