What do I get when I buy this product?
1. Midwest States and Capitals Graphic Organizer
2. A blank map of the Midwest States and Capitals
3. Characteristics of the Midwest Region sorted into five categories: climate, landforms, wildlife, population, and resources
4. Summarizing Non-Fiction Graphic Organizer
5. Superhero-Themed Connection
I usually have my students work on a superhero-themes project in conjunction with the regions of the United States. The students will summarize each region with the materials I provide for them, determine various unique characteristics for each region, and apply those characteristics into superhero creation (one for each region - TEAM AMERICA!).
If the Midwest Region is characterized by having all four seasons, a student's superhero could have the power of changing those seasons when the superhero desires.
** THE RESOURCE IS EDITABLE! **
Please respect that it was created by JB Resources, but if you have a vision for this product that doesn't include superheroes - or if you want to add something pertinent to your class - then go for it!
