Southeast Region, Regions of the United States
Your students will enjoy reading this complex informational text about the Southeast region. There's more to the Southeast than just sunny beaches!
This is one of a series of five informational text packets I have created for teaching about the regions of the United States.
This a 6-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about the region. While reading the complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, and culture of the region. Also included is an Anticipation Guide is to be used as they read the text to guide their 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:
“Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia
“Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont
“Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin
“Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas
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 these materials were 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, regions units are also perfect for 4th, 5th, or 6th graders studying the five regions of the United States.
