The Draw and Explore Geography series is a great way to combine art and geography. A short description of each state is given that includes when the state became a state, its major cities and regions, and additional information such as mountains and other key features. Each is followed by an image of the state showing the cities and regions on a grid. Next, students can do one or all of the assignments that follow. They can draw half of the image in a grid that shows the left half of the picture, half of the image in a grid that shows the right half of the picture, or the entire image on an empty grid. This makes the unit completely flexible for both left-handed and right-handed students. Multiple review activities as well as an answer key are also included.
Volume 2 includes New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Louisiana, Indiana, and Mississippi. 44 pages total.
This volume is also available as part of the Draw and Explore Geography: United States, Vol. 1-6 Bundle.
