This vocabulary list was created for use with high-school ESL students taking US History. It could also be used for upper elementary social studies or with middle or high school students who have limited academic skills or geography vocabulary.
Also included is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet that is designed to help students deepen their understandings of these geographic concepts and how they influenced US development. Perfect for use in the beginning of the school year!
The words for this vocabulary list have all been used in multiple choice questions on previous NY State Regents exams.
