* I know that some teachers like to include VS10 along with VS2a,b,c when teaching about the 5 regions, however the 2015 Framework no longer lists out products and industries by region. The wording is much more broad to Virginia in general. I plan to create a separate lesson for just VS10b,c. Once I have all of the lessons for VS2a,b,c and VS10b,c completed, I will offer them in a bundle. If you are still teaching to the 2008 standards and would like products and industries included with the regions lessons, just send me an email, and I can add them in special for you!
If you enjoy this set, please look for my lesson on VS 2a,c Border States and Relative Location! Remember to come back and give a review if you and your students found this product helpful!
