    I have my students do projects based on the 5 regions: Northeast, Southeast, Middle West, West, and Southwest. First the entire class reads about each region. I then divide the class up into 5 groups, assigning a region to each group. Once in their groups, the students are required to research that regions natural resources, manufactured goods, climate, tourist attractions, population of each state within that region, five famous people from that region, and landforms found within that region. I have a rubric I use to grade them. Much of this information can be found in their Social Studies book, but some has to be researched elsewhere.
