This summer I spent some time creating some resources for my 5th graders. Our first unit is geography and the students have to learn about the Regions of the United States. I wanted them to use maps and graphic organizers to gather their information.
The first thing I had them do was to label all the states and then mark the different regions on their maps.
We then took notes about each region and put the information on an interactive foldable graphic organizer.
