The second is a shorter and simpler test, designed to be students' first "closed book" test, and includes a map activity that includes all the regions. This test is useful for my class because I teach the West unit at the end of the year after we’ve studied the other regions).

    You will need:
    ► Nonfiction articles on each region. I have included links to online articles to get you started if you do not have a social studies text.
    ► Transparency sheet (for displaying one of the included maps)
    ► Index cards
    ► Sand, plastic spoons and glue (for elevation map project)
    ► Hole punch (for stamp and timeline projects)
    ► Colored pencils and crayons (for most projects)
    ► Chalk pastels, tissues (for 2 art projects)
    ► Colored construction paper
