Landforms - About Us



Welcome!

As you explore this unit, you might be curious to know something about the teacher who created it and the students who experienced it.


My name is Gina Shatney, and I teach sixth grade in a self-contained classroom at a K-8 school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There are 28 students in my class, and they are at a wide range of ability levels. Science is one subject that really seems to bring the class together despite differences in reading and math levels.

This unit on Landforms is the first half of a broader unit that includes the study of Rocks & Minerals. Many of my students have not seen a large variety of landforms in person, so we rely on photos, models,demonstrations, and experiments to gain an understanding of the formation of Earth's landforms.

I hope you enjoy the information included in this site. Please feel free to email me with questions and suggestions!

Sincerely,
Gina Shatney
