Teaching the 5 Regions of Virginia can be tedious. If you download this product, it will be mundane no longer!
The Regions of Virginia Pageant is a fun whole class activity that will have students thinking beyond the products, features, and resources located in each region. They will be tasked with writing a detailed response about why 1 region is far superior than the other 4. The activity is structured in a pageant format. Teachers will serve as the pageant panel, and will assess all students written work and presentations accordingly. A second runner up, runner up, and winner will be "crowned" at the end of the presentations. (I created sashes for my runners up and winner.)
This ready to use item includes the writing prompt, writing pages, and a detailed rubric at the end. Have fun, and remember, all that pageant winners truly want is world peace!
