Mrs. Wagner's fourth grade geography class studied the United States the first half of the school year. She introduced groups of states based on a theme such as the Appalachian Trail, Great Lakes States, Lewis and Clark, Trail of Tears, etc. She included a few states here or there that didn't naturally fit. The students worked together to create this atlas. They each created their own website of states. They did research using Fact Monster. I created the structure of the main US Atlas website and made the themed pages (with videos, images, and activities). Then I linked their states into the main US Atlas website. The navigation is a little cumbersome because we didn't create this as a single website. When viewing a state, simply use the back arrow or click on the "US Atlas" link to return to this page.
