Final Stop on the United States Region Tour: The West

By Beth Newingham on February 22, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

For the last stop of our United States region tour, we pretend to travel by bus and on an airplane in this region. We first visit Lolo Pass, a stop on the trail of famous explorers Lewis and Clark. We then travel to Yellowstone National Park; Leadville, Colorado; California's Central Valley; Disneyland; the Columbia River Gorge; and Anchorage, Alaska. In Honolulu, Hawaii, we celebrate the end of our region tour with a Hawaiian luau.

As part of our tour stop in Anchorage, Alaska, we visit the Scholastic website to learn more about the Iditarod Race

View more photos and information about the West Region tour on our classroom website.
