This project includes the following:
*Lesson plan --two or three days to complete.
*I CAN statements identifying the major water and landforms in the United States. Check boxes are included as bullet points in front of statements.
*Student project title cards to put on top of each map (glue finished product on large piece of 12"x 18" construction paper).
*Project title strips for students --four per page to save paper.
*Map legend template.
*Outline map of the mainland United States for students to label.
*Map legend with written labels for students who need accommodations.
*Final map legend with color-coded labels.
*Labeled map with colored oceans for students who need accommodations.
*Final colored US Physical Map.
This project is one I've used for years with fifth graders, but it could certainly be used with students as young as in fourth grade or as old as sixth grade. I usually open the year with this geography unit, but I have the students keep the map all year in a folder so that they can refer to it when needed.
I hope this will work well for you.
