This project is designed to teach the students about the 5 Regions of the USA. This is designed as a group project, but could be assigned individually if needed.
Each region has 5 jobs (set up for 25 students). The jobs are Travel Agent, Cartographer, Geographer, Food Guide, and Historian. Each job has a list of things that they are to report on the region. The information sheet contained in this file is for students to use as a reference. It outlines the project and describes what each job means.
There are graphic organizers for each person to record their research on. The original project is designed to align with an oral and digital presentation for each region. Students must work together to combine their assignments into one presentation that will be presented for the class. Each student becomes and expert and a teacher for their region.
Things highlighted in each region:
Major attractions, States and Capitals, Climate, Population, Area, Popular Foods, Historical Events/landmarks, Famous Americans, Maps, Landforms, and other related topics.
NO UPDATED TO INCLUDE RUBRICS FOR GRADING EACH JOB!
