    I teach 4th grade in California. We make relief maps using a product called celluclay - you just add water and it makes a paper mache which is easy to use and dries in a couple of days. We make our maps in the bottom of unused pizza boxes. After the celluclay dries (put books on the closed boxes so they don't warp) we color a paper map to glue on the inside top cover of the pizza box - then we paint the celluclay the same colors. The paper map includes a map key so the regions of CA are identified. Our last step is to make decorate the outside cover and sides of the pizza box. It's a great project, the students learn a lot and love doing it!

    P.S. You can probably find celluclay at your local crafts store.
