This product is a rubric for the group project that I created. Students will work in small groups to create a map of their assigned US region. The map includes elements from the following types of maps: physical, population, natural resources, historical map. Students have to accurately draw and label the absolute locations for the states and features within their region. It's a great cumulative project at the end of a map unit, especially for 5th grade because of the focus on the United States.
