Description

This U.S. geography unit on the West region covers the natural resources, products, landmarks, landforms, and history of the region. It also has visual, kinesthetic, note-taking, writing, poetry, mapping, and dramatic activities. The test(s) included have answer keys.

This product contains:

✅ Timeline project (History preview activity)
✅ Region map preview (Kinesthetic activity and coloring activity)
✅ States and Capitals (Game)
✅ Homework: Cursive States and Capitals (2 differentiated assignments, 3 pages each)
✅ Landforms (Concept web and drawing activity)

✅Two final tests with answer key (The first has 25 multiple choice questions, 5 multiple choice questions on using an outline, and 3 open response paragraphs to choose from. The second is a shorter and simpler test, designed to be students' first "closed book" test, and includes a map activity that includes all the regions. This test is useful for my class because I teach the West unit at the end of the year after we’ve studied the other regions).

You will need:
► Social studies textbook chapter on the West region. I have included links to online articles to get you started.
►Transparency sheet (for displaying one of the included maps)
► Index cards
► Sand, plastic spoons and glue (for elevation map project)
► Hole punch (for stamp and timeline projects)
► Colored pencils and crayons (for most projects)
