Learn about the Southeast region of the United States with this informational text!
This 6-page handout of information about the Southeast Region can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about the five regions of the United States. Your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, and culture of the Southeast. Also includes an anticipation guide with questions for before and after reading.
Because the United States can be divided into regions in many ways, please check to see if this version matches your standards. My materials marked “Five Regions” have the states divided this way:
Southeast: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia
Northeast: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont
Midwest: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin
Southwest: Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas
West: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming
If this version doesn’t match what you need, check my other listings for materials marked “Four Regions.”
While this packet was written to correspond to Florida's Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for 3rd grade Social Studies when I couldn't find anything else appropriate for my students, "The Southeast Region" is also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the five regions of the United States. "The Southeast Region" is the first of five sets of materials that will take your students on a tour of the United States, from Southeast, to Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, and finally the West.
Make your study of the Southeast complete. See my other listings for a Reading Anticipation Guide, a quiz, and a fun "scrapbook" activity that correlate with the information in "The Southeast Region." You might also be interested in my other materials for the Northeast, Midwest, Southwest, and West regions.
