Topographical Map of the Sea of Galilee

Continuing with this week's story––Jesus calms the storm (Matthew 8:23-27)––we set out to make a topographical map of the story's setting. We made our own play-dough (spelt flour, sea salt and water; safe enough for Asher to eat) and set to work shaping the dough into mountains to overlook the Sea.
After baking our mountains for an hour, Abishai painted them a grassy green.

We poured water into our tinfoil sea and the boys slowly blew down over the mountains to create ripples on the water.  The Sea of Galilee is quite shallow and is easily tossed up by the wind, making storms treacherous.
