For students in Maine studying the Pine Tree State, this is an assignment to help students understand the geography and economy of the coastal region of Maine. This can be used as a part of a Maine Social Studies Unit. Research is required to complete the assignment, and this research can be done with any resources available on the State of Maine, or on the internet. This assignment does not include separate research resources, such as how to develop Key Words and Search Terms for internet searches, and how to take notes. I will be posting a Key Word Sheet soon for students to use when researching.
