Regions of Texas
Transcript of Regions of Texas
Create a foldable:
1. Fold your paper in half
2. Glue your colored page of Texas across the fold, evenly in half.
3. Cut your fold horizontally in half, stopping at your fold crease. You are using this as a graphic organizer to show the differences and similarities in Texas Regions.
Under each folded region (some region may overlap, so label your regions.) write the things that are found in that region. Refer to your notes and the things we discussed in class.
