This set includes a reading comprehension passage, review questions, a compare and contrast chart (with Blue Ridge Mountains), a Bonus interactive notes study guide page and a Geography Practice page. The passage includes all of the key vocabulary from the SOLs (VS.2b), including some of the industries that contribute to Virginia’s economy. An easy to read map as well as picture aids that relate to the reading will help students visualize concepts about this region. There is a mix of multiple choice and open-ended question types. I have just added a NEW Venn diagram activity so students can compare and contrast the Blue Ridge and Valley and Ridge. This set also includes a BONUS interactive notes page with information about the Fall Line and ALL of the regions! It’s a handy reference sheet that can go in an interactive notebook or in a homework folder to help with studying before quizzes or tests. There is even a Geography Practice page, which you could use as an exit ticket, homework or quiz. Answer Keys for all question pages means there is absolutely no prep!
