The geographical features of the United States have shaped it’s history in many important ways.

This internet scavenger hunt allows students to work on these skills while also working on literacy skills like reading for information and summarizing. As if that wasn’t enough skills, they will also utilize technology and work on internet research.

Download this Internet Scavenger Hunt for the Geographical Features of the United States that has 3 versions – a version students can type on, a pdf version with clickable links and a pdf version with QR codes for iPads to scan. It is a free download at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

Our first graders receive resource binders to keep in their "seat sacks." These binders include reference pages for math (120 chart, number word page), literacy, and more. It's similar to a "mini-office" except that it's in a binder format. Every student receives a "personal word wall" page with sight words, plus a blank word wall to fill in throughout the year:
The above picture shows both pages (we print them double-sided). To read more about the resource binders and pick up your own word wall copy, please click here!
