Third Grade Research Project

South Carolina Regions

What are we doing?

Students, you will read some of the selected South Carolina titles about the different regions in our state. Then you will use the computers to research in a group one of the 6 different regions:

Blue Ridge

Piedmont

Sandhills

Inner Coastal Plain

Outer Coastal Plain

Coastal Zone

You will be divided into groups based on the table where you sit. While you are doing your research discover the types of animals that live in that area, the type of terrain you will find in that area, and some of the different towns in that area.


Be prepared to present information to the class about your area of our state. If you find an interesting fact...like that Clemson University (Go Tigers!) is found in the Blue Ride, be sure to include it!
