To begin, students will be grouped into four different groups (Mountains and Basins, Great Plains, North Central Plains, and Coastal Plains) and will read a passage about their region. Guided Practice: Students will work in their groups and fill out a graphic organizer with information on their assigned region. Students will then come up with a detailed plan of a large poster they will create to present to the remainder of the class. At this time students will show the teacher their plan to get the OK and move forward with their online research. Independent Practice: Students will conduct online research on their assigned region and will print out any information they find. They will use the information they found online and will add it to their poster. Closure: Once the research and poster creation is complete by all four groups, each group will present their region. Students will have a table/chart to fill out as other group present. All students will have their table/chart filled out and then as a group we will compare each region to see where they are different and alike.
