Google Slide | 1 page | Grades: 3 - 6

Practice identifying states in the five regions of the United States with a Google Interactive activity.

Activities to Teach Regions of the United States

Labeling paper maps with states and regions of the United States is so last year. We’ve put together the perfect digital resource to help your students practice identifying the regions of the United States and the states found within those regions.

 With this Google Interactive activity, students are tasked to

  • Identify types of maps and common vocabulary related to continents, countries, and regions.
  • Label the five regions of the United States.
  • Identify the states located in each of the regions of the United States (Northwest, Midwest, Southeast, Northeast, and Southwest) 

Through this activity, students will click, drag, and drop labels to match vocabulary terms, identify the regions of the United States, and label the fifty United States of America.
