Grab and Go Earth Science – Landforms Exit Tickets

Are you teaching your students about landforms? Are you unsure if they are grasping the concepts? Let us help you assess that understanding with a set of exit tickets!

A landform is a feature on the Earth’s surface that is part of the terrain. Mountains, hills, plateaus, and plains are the four major types of landforms, but there are so many more! This resource is a set of 20 exit tickets designed to have your students demonstrate an understanding of the major landforms on maps and globes.

The geographic landforms referenced in this editable resource are

  • desert
  • lake
  • glacier
  • hill
  • island
  • river
  • volcano 
  • iceberg
  • plains

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy! 

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

In addition to independent student work time, use these exit tickets as an activity for:

  • Lesson warm-up
  • Lesson wrap-up
  • Fast finishers 
  • Homework assignment

This is a great tool for assessment, as you can mark off student answers as they move through the questions to show progress and understanding.
