I created this booklet to be used with “The Kentucky Adventure, 2008 Gibbs Smith publication” textbook.
Higher level questions about each region
Compare and contrasting regions
Address the following Kentucky Core Stardards:
Students will describe how the physical environment (e.g., mountains as barriers for protection, rivers as barriers of transportation) both promoted and restricted human activities during the early settlement of Kentucky.
Students will explain and give examples of how people adapted to/modified the physical environment (e.g., natural resources, physical geography, natural disasters) to meet their needs during the history of Kentucky and explain its impact on the environment today.
Students will compare regions in Kentucky and the United States by their human characteristics (e.g., language, settlement patterns, beliefs) and physical characteristics (e.g., climate, landforms, bodies of water).
Students will describe patterns of human settlement in regions of Kentucky and explain how these patterns were/are influenced by physical characteristics (e.g., climate, landforms, bodies of water).
Students will use geographic tools to locate major landforms, bodies of water, places and objects in Kentucky by their absolute and relative locations.
