A popular attraction at capes in the northeast is BEACHES. A beach is a landform that is on the coastline. If you like sandy, warm beaches, come on down to the Northeast!
Speaking of COASTLINES, what about the breathtaking Atlantic coast! In fact, most of the Northeast is a coastline. What about that!
There are also ISLANDS. An island is an area of land, big or small, that is completely surrounded by water on all sides. A popular island is Long Island in New York.
Also in the Northeast is the Allegheny Plateau in Pennsylvania! A Plateau is high land that has a flat surface. It’s kind of like a plain but the land in higher and off the ground.
Appalachian Mountains! The Appalachian Mountain range stretches from Canada to Alabama. MOUNTAINS are landforms in the Northeast region. Mountains are landforms with peaks, they are REALLY TALL!!!
Now, the opposite of a mountain is a VALLEY. A valley is surrounded by mountains and hills. It slopes down between them all to become a valley.
Next is PLAINS. Plains are great if you want to have a picnic, run around, be alone with friends and so many other uses. A plain is an area of land that has hardly any trees or bushes, it's just a stretch of land that’s flat.
The Northeast is a great place to play hide and seek outdoors because it has FORESTS! Forests have tall trees and short trees, but watch your step, you don’t want to trip on some wood. You probably won’t see much light through the forest of leaves in the sky.
