Did you know that Louisiana is the only state with parishes? Well, we are, and we have 64 parishes!
My students learned this week all about the regions of Louisiana in which these parishes are found. Students worked in collaborative groups, 2 days this week to explore a region of Louisiana. They used information sheets in their groups to locate their region's location, characteristics, notable landmarks and even drew a few pictures to represent their characteristics. Then they combined their answers to complete a group sheet on their region. Student's learned a lot about their region and even found out that Brittney Spears is from the Crossroads region and that Duck Dynasty is filmed in Sportsman's Paradise.
