Amusement Park Project 
(Due September 25th)


U.S. Regions Amusement Park Project

Name ________________________________________________________________________________

Question: How are the states and cities that were significant to the development of the United States grouped by geographic region?                       


Task 1:

You have been given the task to help design an amusement park to showcase the regions of the United States and the cities in those regions. Your job is to choose ONE region and to design a section of the amusement park and to create a map for that region of the park. The park will have seven sections: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, Rocky Mountain, Pacific, and Noncontiguous. You will choose one.

In your section, you must:

               *Label the geographic region.

            *Create at least THREE rides for your part of the park. Each ride must represent an important city in that region.   The rides must illustrate that you understand why the cities are significant. For example, a ride to represent Denver, Colorado may be a log flume that splashes through a mining river. Make sure you include the city names on the rides or in the ride names. 

 USE THE TEXTBOOK (CHAPTER 1, PAGES 12-30) FOR INFORMATION ABOUT IMPORTANT CITIES.  THE PICTURES IN EACH REGION WILL HELP YOU GET IDEAS FOR THE TYPES OF RIDES TO DESIGN.


Task 2:

After you design your region of the amusement park, write one brief paragraph.

Your paragraph should include:

            *Welcome guests to the region.

            *Explain how that section of the park is representative of the region.

            *Include the names of ALL the states grouped in that region.

            *List the rides in the region. This will highlight each significant city.


*YOUR FINAL PROJECT SHOULD BE ON POSTER PAPER AS WELL AS NEAT AND COLORFUL!
