Product Description
This is a hands-on, creative, and fun way to engage your students when studying the five regions of the United States!!

This project contains:
1- Lesson description (prepare-ahead ideas, lesson presentation ideas, and pictures to help you along the way)
2- Student handout with instructions
3- Salt dough recipe
4- Map with outlines of the US regions (to glue the salt dough on)
5- Map key and compass rose for student completion
6- Rubric

I have done this activity in my classroom over the past few years. It is something the students will NEVER forget! I use this activity before we dive into each region so that they can get acquainted with new terminology and practice their mapping skills.

I used this in my fourth grade classroom, but it can be adapted for younger or older grades.

Please let me know if you have any questions!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
