Transcript of Copy of California Regions

By: Sharmika Phillips

Central Valley
Land in the Central Valley is some of the most productive farmland in the world.
Has rich soil and long growing season.
Supplies about half the country’s fruits, vegetables, and grains.
Receives little rain in the summer, so dams, channels, pumps, and ditches are used to bring water.
Largest population of people
Coastal Region
The northern and central coast's cool and wet climate help thick forests grow.

The sunny southern coast attracts people who prefer a warm climate.
Mountain Region
Over half of the land in the state is covered with mountains.

Klamath Mountains and the Cascade Range in the north. The Sierra Nevada and the Coast Ranges form a ring around the Central Valley.

Melting snow from the Sierra Nevada provides water to farms and cities.
Northern Coast
Natural Bridges State Beach
Southern California Beach
Klamath Mountains
Lassen Peak Lassen Volcanic Park, California (southernmost active volcano in the Cascade Range)

Mountain Range
Desert Region
Mojave Desert
Warm throughout the year and very hot in the summer.
The winters usually bring little rainfall.
Hundreds of types of plants and animals live in the extreme climate of the desert regions of the Mojave Desert and the Colorado Desert.
Animals adapt by staying inactive in protected hideaways during the hot day and coming out at dusk, dawn or at night, when the desert is cooler to find food.

Research each region using your textbook. Give a description of the climate and weather. Describe 2-3 plants, animals and landforms located in the region. Make a collage of the region you have been assigned using pictures that represent that region. Use pictures of geographic structures, land forms and animals. Tell what each picture represents.
