Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: 1 - 4

Assess your students’ knowledge of the major rivers and mountains in the United States with a set of exit tickets.

United States Rivers and Mountains – Activities and Assessments

The United States is a vast and beautiful continent, and young learners need to know more about the amazing land features found in the United States. With these exit tickets, students are tasked to:

  • Identify and locate major mountain regions in the United States
  • Identify and locate major rivers in the United States
  • Identify and locate major bodies of water in and around the United States

In addition to individual student work time, use these exit tickets as a:

  • Social Studies Activity
  • Post-lesson assessment 
  • Whole-class review (via smartboard)

For students who need extra support, use these tickets as an intervention activity or with a guided small group.
