This lesson is for introducing students to the different regions of the U.S and learning where the states are located. This simple PowerPoint is an ad for teachers in teaching the different regions and states.
I like to intro the students to the different regions by having students color coat each region on a blank map. We create a map key on the side with the name of each region.
I will introduce a different region each day and assign each region a color. In addition, I give each state a number, and we number all the states. On a blank sheet of paper we write the number down with the name of the state followed by the state’s abbreviation.
Hence, we will do this each day for each different region. I will test the students by breaking the test up by regions.
*** Last slide is master copy example of how I labeled the states.
