of the Coastal
Plains makes
great farmland. In the central part of the Appalachian Highlands is one of the most productive coal fields in the world. The Interior Lowlands is a very productive agricultural area. The grasslands in the Great Plains are great for growing wheat and raising cattle. In the Rocky Mountains there are rich deposits of minerals. The diverse Basin and Range region contains useful minerals like copper, gold, lead, silver and zinc. The continent's tallest peaks can be found in the inland ranges of the Coastal Range. The Canadian Shield has few people because of its cold climate and poor soil. It is very helpful to know about the eight geographic regions. Each region is special with different land and water features. Different features mean that different types of plants and animals live in the regions. Having different regions helps organize and keep track of the many contrasting features on our continent. Conclusion "North America." Rogers, Jefferson S. World Book Student. World Book, 2012.
