Product Description
Major rivers and mountains in the United States have played an important role in the history of our nation. Mississippi and Missouri Rivers served as routes for Westward Expansion while the Rocky Mountains created a natural barrier to the West.

In this unit, students will read and complete activities about Major U.S. Rivers and Mountain chains including the following:
✔Mississippi River
✔Missouri River

✔St. Lawrence River
✔Rio Grande River
✔The Rocky Mountains

Vocabulary:
Introduce and review the vocabulary words using the colorful vocabulary posters with real-life photos. These posters are excellent for bulletin boards too! Have students cut, glue, and define the vocabulary words using the flip flaps.

Reading:
Read the passages about each river and mountain chain. Have students complete the comprehension questions and graphic organizers for each passage. Students will enjoy meeting John Muir, an important environmentalist.

Activities:
There are several hands-on activities to reinforce learning. You can use them in a learning station, for centers, as homework, or to review at the end of the unit.

Here’s what included:
✔Graphic Organizers
✔Spotlight on Vocabulary
✔Label and color the maps
✔U.S. Mountains CRQ

There are lots of ways to use this packet in the classroom depending on your students and the time allotted for this lesson.
These are great for center or station work where students work with a partner or in a group to read through the information and then complete their organizers.

If time is limited, you could have each group study and learn about one of the U.S. Landforms and then share their findings with the class. This packet is meant to give them a general foundation of information but if desired students could do additional research to learn even more about each of the U.S. Landforms.
