Instead of having your students assess on the Southeast, have them assessed in a creative way, by having them create a suitcase on their favorite state in the Southeast Region. The students will research 3 attractions in the state they chose. They will find out the cost, the location and what items to wear or bring when they visit that place.
This project will take 1 week, pending on how much time you give your students.
Included are the directions, printables to complete project, along with a rubric to grade the project.
