Texas Regions Salt Dough Project

Salt Dough Project - Texas Regions

We have been studying landforms, vegetation, and climate of each of the four major regions of Texas. Each student will be required to create a three-dimensional model “salt dough map” of the landforms and regions. This project will be constructed in class.

We need your assistance to help your child make the recipe below for this project and send it in by Monday, September 18th in a gallon sized Ziploc bag.

Dough Recipe:

1 cup flour

1 cup salt

2/3 cup cold water

In a bowl, mix salt and flour until blended. Add just enough water to make mixture the consistency of a thick icing or playdoh. Stir thoroughly and store in a Ziploc bag. It should not stick to your hands, it should not be runny.

Thank you so much for your help!  This should be a fun project!

Please let me know if you have any questions. 
I can't wait to see my students on Tuesday!!!!!

Great First Day!

 We had a great first day!  I can't wait until tomorrow!  It's going to be an amazing year!  
Please remember that you can send a water bottle with your child to keep in class.  It's hot!  
Also, there is no homework this week.  But, students can do their "name research" in their red homework folder if they like.
Have a great evening!
