ExplorationNow it’s your turn to create a peninsula! Use a blue piece of construction paper as a mat, then flatten a piece of clay or craft dough on top of it. Mold the clay or dough into a body of land. For ideas, look at a real map and see if you can copy the shapes by making your own clay and construction paper map.Now take one edge of the clay and create a peninsula. This peninsula should be attached to the main piece of land but stick out into the “water” so it’s surrounded by water on three sides. Perhaps you can make Florida, or the country of Italy, another famous peninsula!
