This project is meant to be a self directed, universally designed project for kids to research something that they are curious about related to each region of the US. I use it as homework, but it could be done in school or as a group project as well.
I have seen some amazing projects and I am always pleasantly surprised with what they can accomplish when they are truly interested in what they are learning about. I made this project for 4th graders, but it could be easily modified to fit any elementary grade.
For the presentation piece, we use the PVLEGS checklist, but you could use whatever works for you.
*I have a similar project for The Great Immigration
