Georgia...All about Georgia's regions and symbols: Let your students show what they have learned about Georgia by using this 8.5 x 11 poster (landscape) that focuses on topics related to the state of Georgia.
This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
The Georgia poster activity has plenty of places for students to add their own creative touches with color.
This would make a great individual research assignment, partner activity, or homework activity. Use it as you are going over Georgia region facts or possibly for a review before standardized testing time. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
The sections for the students to fill out are:
*place for name
*Draw blue lines on the Georgia map to show the 7 major rivers and then label them with a #1-7 according to the poster.
*Use different colors to show each of the 5 regions of Georgia. Color in the boxes beside each name to indicate which region is which.
NOTE: Students will need to use a reference map to label the rivers and color the regions. You will need to provide this. Also, If you are working with second graders, you will want to monitor this closely, or you may even want to use a projector and complete the map part as a guided/teacher directed activity where you add those to a map at the same time they add it to a map.
*Show the capital city on the map using a star.
*Draw and color the Georgia flag using the outline of a flag provided.
*Images are given of the following symbols. Students name the symbols pictured and color: fruit, vegetable, tree, flower, bird
*Label the Capitol building of GA and color the dome gold.
*Tell the nickname
*Fill in the chart with a few words (NOTE: there is limited space for a few descriptive words) about animals, plants, and the land in each region. There is enough room for 3-4 plants and animals and adjectives about the land.
