This guided reading and constructed response activity aligns with the newest Georgia Geography standard:
SS8G1d. Analyze the importance of water in Georgia’s historical development and economic growth.
The two-page guided reading passage explores the importance of Georgia's water sources to its political geography, historical development, and economic activity from American Indian cultures to today. The passage is chunked and provides a glossary to scaffold for your student's needs.
The constructed responses require students to use the RACE writing method to cite textual evidence in their response. These questions could also be used later as a short answer written response question on the unit test.
