This lesson is to introduce students to the basics of the Blue Ridge region of SC. Students will become familiar with a few facts about the mountains, types of rocks, forests, and the vegetation of this region. Students will also locate the region relative to the region where they live and compare the similarities and differences of each region. The students will also take the time to write a short reflection on the region and its characteristics. An extension of a math lesson is included where students can calculate the direction of their home region relative to the Blue Ridge region. Students can also use a road map to plan a trip to the region from their home.
