Transcript of The Regions of Georgia

Resources/Sites used in the making of this prezi The 5 regions of Georgia Landmarks ~ Lookout Mountain,
Natural Resources ~ sugar maple, tulip poplar, beech, birch, and hemlock
Economic Activity ~Tourism, Forestry
Population ~
Climate ~ mild summers/mild winters
Physical Features ~ Mountains (Appalachian Mountains) Appalachian Plateau The Blue Ridge Mountains The Piedmont The Savannah river is one of Georgia's longest and largest waterways and defines most of the boundary between Georgia and South Carolina. It encompasses 10,577 square miles, of which 175 square miles are in southwestern North Carolina, 4,581 square miles are in western South Carolina, and 5,821 square miles are in eastern Georgia. The Savannah river The Barrier Islands Valley and Ridge The river has played a key role in the history of the state of Georgia. Archaic and Woodland Indians are known to have called the Chattahoochee home. Mound builders navigated it as far north as present-day Helen. This river was also important to the Cherokees and Creeks. Chattahoochee River The Appalachian mountains stretch from Newfoundland to Alabama. The highest point in the Appalachians and also the highest elevation east of the Mississippi River is Mount Mitchell in North Carolina at 6,684 ft. The Appalachian Mountains The fall line is a geological boundary about
twenty miles wide that runs across Georgia northeastward from Columbus to Augusta.
Rivers of the Coastal Plain were a major means of commercial transportation during the 1700s and early 1800s. The Fall Line ~ PiZap.com

the love of this land is strong
for we give it strength Haiku about Georgia Brief Overview on Georgia The Coastal Plains The Okefenokee swamp is one of North America’s most unspoiled, fascinating and precious natural areas. It is the largest, intact, un-fragmented, freshwater and black water wilderness swamp in North America. Hope you enjoyed! :D Barrier islands are not merely pieces of the mainland surrounded by
water. These landmasses are continually changing as the powerful
forces of winds, ocean currents, waves, storms and tides reshape them.
Tides have the greatest impact on the evolution of the barrier islands. Georgia is the 24th biggest state in the
United States. Georgia's major industries are
textiles, timber (especially pine), and agriculture
(cotton, corn, peanuts, soybeans, poultry) Although each of these regions of Georgia are different in their own ways, they still share common factors. It snows more in the Blue Ridge and Appalachian areas than in the Coastal plains or Piedmont. Each area has important geographic features that make it popular in tourism. They all have a good amount of natural resources that contributes to its own economy. Each area has a variety of career options and jobs to choose from, based on their specific area. They are all fairly mild as far as yearly climate goes. Each area's landmarks are unique to the environment they're located in. Population levels are high in every region. The relationships between the regions Landmarks ~The Okefenokee Swamp, Providence Canyon
Natural Resources ~Hematite and Bauxite
Economic Activity ~Coastal fisheries and forest resources support a number
of industries involved with seafood and wood products and it's mostly an agricultural-based economy.
