Australia relief map

This was a home room homework task. This task was all about creating a map of Australia out of dough with heaps of detail. My favourite parts were cutting out the map from the dough chunk and creating the hills it was so quick and doing it with dough was fun and quick to do. My least favourite parts were making the rivers and drawing the colour, it was so fiddly and hard to make look good and draw in all the cracks. The hardest part was pouring out the salt for the map, I couldn’t take the lid off the salt container so I had to pour. With the other three maps I loved the detail and effort put into it with the hills and colours in specific spots making them look like real proper maps.
