Activity Overview


The Southeast has very unique geographical features. It has both mountains and coastlines, hills and valleys, rivers and swamps. In this activity, students will research the geography of the Southeast and create an informative poster that includes geographical features, facts, and colorful illustrations. Students should be encouraged to focus on the entire region, although this activity could be extended to focus on a singular state so students can educate each other on their findings.
