State Regions Bean Map

First, it was candy.  Then, cereal.  Now, it's beans!  I keep finding great activities involving snacks and food items.

This one comes courtesy of Yearn 4 Learning, where 3rd graders had to represent their home state, California, using a colorful 3D map made of rice, pinto beans, split peas, and popcorn kernels.  Look how nice the final product looks!  I'm sure students enjoyed this hands-on, textured art project.  Could your students use the same technique to showcase your state or region's geographical features?

  1. Oh, that's beautiful! After all, their parents can cook these "states" afterwards!:)
