This is the perfect project to complete a study on the five regions of the United States. Assign students to groups and have them create a plan for a theme park based on their region. This project has students use their knowledge about the economy, history, climate, landforms, and natural resources of the region. The project makes students apply their knowledge in a rigorous way, while keeping students engaged and excited about their final product. For the final product students will create a poster-sized map of their park as well as a detailed brochure about the park. This has been one of my students' favorite projects throughout the year. Scoring guide is included for teacher use.
