        Idaho | Activity 2.6: Idaho’s Three Geographical Regions

        Unit 2: Geography

        Over the course of this Unit, students will come to understand that the physical environment is not static. Through geological processes and human action, seemingly fixed aspects of the landscape are constantly changing and have always been doing so. As the earth influences how people live, how people live in turn effects the earth.

        Lesson Summary

        Students watch a video about the geography of Idaho. Students take notes on each of the state’s regions to then create an advertisement to attract tourists to one of the regions. 

        Standard: 413.06 Identify the geographic features of Idaho.  AND 4.SS.2.1.3 Describe the physical regions of Idaho and identify major natural resources.
