Every year, 2nd grade teachers in GA have to teach the 5 regions of GA. We do lots of fun activities while learning about the 5 regions.
The first thing I teach, is the 5 Regions Song that my class made up years ago. This helps them to remember the names of the 5 regions and their locations.
Use the video below to teach your students the song if you like.
After teaching the song, we then start to dig a little deeper into each region. We usually create a flip book for each region that tells about the habitat, the animals, the weather, and the type of landforms in that region.
This is a yearlong standard that we teach and the kids love learning about the 5 regions.
