Illustrations of Environment regions

        This week we talked about four different environments in North America and how the Native Americans adapted to them.  I always tell my kids that a picture is worth a thousand words.  Some students have difficulty expressing themselves in writing.  So we usually take notes with some form of illustration  to make the information more understandable.
     Here are some of their illustrations of grassland, mountain, desert, and Arctic regions that my students worked on this week.

      The paper was divided into four sections.  A sentence or two was written beneath each illustration to add information.
       We are on the same hall as the second grade.  The teachers have the 2nd graders come out and "Read the Hall".  My students were very excited to know that their work would be teaching younger students about Social Studies.  That is why we used our "best first grade printing to do this assignment.
