Making Salt Maps...

It's begun.  We have mixed, tasted, busted bags, tasted, spilled, busted bags - did I mentioned tasted and then finally began covering our pizza boxes with salt dough.  What an adventure!  I need pictures!

Today, look at http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/countrys/asland.htm.  You can click on the right hand suggestions like mountains, lakes, rivers or deserts to see them appear in Asia.  You can also look at the countries within your region in more detail.

Here are the landforms I want your to try to create on your map.  I hope I organized them correctly! Enjoy 'building up' your salt maps!

Mongolia – Altay Mountains, Gobi Desert,

China – Yellow River, Yangtze River
