Students will study the 5 Regions of the United States and publish their writing on these interactive Fact Fans!
Fact Fans are ideal for practicing note-taking, introducing research, for center work, fast finishers, independent projects, and as a supplement to your unit on the United States.
Students research the states, climate, and geographical features
of the five regions of the United States:
- the West
- the Southwest
- the Midwest
- the South
- the Northeast
They record their notes on the provided Note-taking Sheet.
Publishing the Fact Fans
Students edit their work, and publish their information on these interactive fans!
They color the regions, label the states, record their information, cut out the fans, and hole-punch the fans at the bottom. A metal brad through the circles completes the project.
Also included are a Cover Page and Resources Page for students to practice citing their sources.
Assessment is provided in the forms of two quizzes (one with states labeled, one with states NOT labeled.) Students must name the region.
Answer keys included!
