Transcript of Five Regions of the United States

TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW!
HERE'S WHAT GEOGRAPHER'S KNOW
Geographers have divided the United States into FIVE REGIONS to help differentiate based on some of the things you mentioned.

A REGION can be defined as a group of states with common:
PHYSICAL FEATURES: land, mountains, plains, desert, waterways

CLIMATE: hot and dry (Southwest) or humid (Southeast), rainy (parts of West region)

LANDMARKS: Grand Canyon in Arizona (Southwest), Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota (Midwest)

NATURAL RESOURCES: farming (Southeast, Midwest), cattle ranches (Southwest), oil/gas (Southwest and others)

CULTURE: people, food (BBQ in Southwest and Southeast)
FIVE REGIONS OF THE UNITED STATES
LET'S INVESTIGATE AND DISCOVER!
Work as a group to:
Finish labeling the states
Using your textbook, starting on p. 31, research your assigned region.
Write in your journal the things you find about region (physical features, climate, landmarks, culture, natural resources, etc.)
MORNING ACTIVITY:
You will find a map of the United States on your desk. Label each State using its abbreviation. .
FIVE REGIONS OF THE UNITED STATES
NORTHEAST: MD, PA, NY, NJ, CT, MA, VT, RI, NH, ME

SOUTHEAST: AR, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL, SC, NC, VA, WV, KY, TN

MIDWEST: MN, WI, MI, IN, OH, IL

SOUTHWEST: TX, NM, AZ, OK

WEST: MT, WY, CO, UT, NV, ID, CA, OR, WA, HI, AK
HOW WILL WE USE OUR NEW KNOWLEDGE???
For homework, using colored pencils, shade the map defining each of the five regions. Each region should be shaded the color shown in the legend.
In the coming weeks, we will be learning about each region more in depth.
Glogster Project: you will be learning how to create a Glogster poster in Technology class next week. At the end of the unit, you will create a Glogster on a region of your choice.
Ultimately, it's important for us to understand not just were we live, but the world around us!
Where have you been? What was it like?
Do you have a favorite state?
What do you like about other parts of the United States?
What do you like about Arkansas?
