This is a promethean ActivInspire flipchart that includes dozens of images, maps, video links and interactive review for the Virginia Studies VS.2 including all of the following standards:
VS.2 The student will demonstrate knowledge of the physical geography and native peoples, past and present, of Virginia by
a) locating Virginia and its bordering states on maps of the United States.
b) locating and describing Virginia’s Coastal Plain (Tidewater), Piedmont, Blue Ridge Mountains, Valley and Ridge, and Appalachian Plateau.
c) locating and identifying water features important to the early history of Virginia (Atlantic Ocean, Chesapeake Bay, James River, York River, Potomac River, Rappahannock River, and Lake Drummond and the Dismal Swamp).
d) locating three American Indian language groups (the Algonquian, the Siouan, and the Iroquoian) on a map of Virginia.
e) describing how American Indians related to the climate and their environment to secure food, clothing, and shelter.
f) describing how archaeologists have recovered new material evidence at sites including Werowocomoco and Jamestown.
g) identifying and locating the current state-recognized tribes.
VS.10b The student will demonstrate knowledge of government, geography, and economics by
b) describing the major products and industries of Virginia’s five geographic regions.
This file includes 30+ links to video clips on the internet, vivid photos, interactive maps, questioning for discussion, phrases to help students remember the 4 major rivers and which tribes were in each language group, and review slides.
**Note: the video clips are mostly from YouTube and have been tested on my own internet at school but that does not mean that the links will be allowed in your school. The slides are still a decent representation of the unit and all the standards that need to be taught for the SOL.
