Posters are formatted so the students can create their own 5 page booklet with a cover or you can have them research a region plus a landmark for that region. More specific directions are included as to the options for using. My options for use are just suggestions, as you can use them in your classroom however you would like.
Poster format #1 is for a possible student booklet where each student makes their own book using a cover page and 5 posters, one for each region. On the poster, the students will write information to describe the following: land, water, climate, product produced, natural resources, other information, and they will draw a picture and tell about a landmark found in that region. There is also a US map for students to color in the regions.
I have also included the #1 posters without specific categories listed. You would then just tell the students to write the title in each research box, using categories you want them to tell about.
Poster format #2 is for students to each be given a different poster. The posters are formatted just like #1 above, but on these posters a state is listed (one for all 50 states). A landmark is then pictured for that state. When students do their region research, they will tell some information about that particular landmark.
I have also included extra note taking pages that can be copied on the back or used as a second page that you staple to the region research poster. This is to be used if they don’t have enough space on the first poster.
I have also included 3 maps of the US, which show the 5 regions. You can use these for display purposes.
Thank you so much!
