Cross Curriculum Art Lesson Plan Presentation Transcript

  • 1. REGIONS OF THE UNITED STATES Chelcie Tuell
  • 2. What is a region? • The geographic definition of a region is • Places that have “one or more common characteristics that give them a measure of unity and make them distinct from surrounding areas.” • Regions are areas of land that have common features. A region can be defined by natural or artificial features. Language, government, or religion can define a region, as can forests, wildlife, or climate.
  • 3. “A common way of referring to regions in the United States is grouping them into 5 regions according to their geographic position on the continent: the Northeast, Southwest, West, Southeast, and Midwest.”
  • 4. Southeastern United States
  • 5. Symbols and Symbolism • A symbol is a letter, character, or sign used instead of a word or group of words. • Many states use symbolism to describe and represent something. • Official symbols represent the cultural heritage and natural treasures of a particular state. • Each state and region is also recognized by well-known icons and emblems such as state flags and seals. • A "National Garland of Flowers" created for the 1893 Chicago World's Fair (made of representative flowers selected by each state) was the inspiration for adopting official state floral emblems. This began a trend that led to the adoption of official state birds, trees, and all the unique state symbols recognized today.
