Teach the Texas Regions in an exciting way - take your kids on an imaginary bus tour as they learn all about the Four Natural Regions of Texas.
Your students will take an imaginary field trip around the great state of Texas in the “Bus Tour of Texas”. Your kids will see images of the regions of Texas out of the “bus window”, and then go to 4 different bus stops at different locations around the state. At each bus stop, they will exit the bus, read information about their bus stop, answer questions and write a post card “home” summarizing what they have learned.
This resource has been modified for ELL with several different levels of readings
