Description

Your students will enjoy reading this complex informational text about the Midwest region. Discover what makes the "Heart of America" a unique place.

This unit includes printable options only. If you would like a digital option using Google Drive, check out my Midwest Region Digital Only for Distance Learning with a Google Slides version of the reading text and questions, and a self-grading Google Forms version of the unit test, or get the bundle with both printable and digital options.

Each region includes a 6-page informational text packet that can be used as a "textbook chapter" when teaching about the region. While reading the complex text, your students will learn about the land, water, climate, products, natural resources, landmarks, and culture of the region. The informational text includes an Anticipation Guide with questions to be used as they read the text to guide their reading. Each region also includes a study guide to help them learn to label the states on a map, a 30 question quiz, and a fun "scrapbook" activity with a grading rubric. Study guides and tests now also include an optional page for the state capitals and the state abbreviations.

Take a look at the other regions in this series.

Because the United States can be divided into regions in many ways, please check to see if this version matches your standards. My materials marked “Five Regions” have the states divided this way:

Southeast: “Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia

Northeast: “Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont

Midwest: “Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin

Southwest: “Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas

West: Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming

If this version doesn’t match what you need, check my other listings for materials marked Four Regions.
