WASHINGTON STATE HISTORY:

Outlining chapter two essay assignment. Working on rubric and introduction.

Claim:

“The natural environments of Washington state create seven distinct geographic regions. Each region is the result of an interrelationship between location, physical features, landforms, climate, soils, vegetation, and wildlife. The interaction of these factors gives each region its individual character.”

Do you agree or disagree?

Using your chapter two journal notes and assignments, write a multi-paragraph response that shows how the geographical regions of the Puget Lowlands and the Columbia Plateau are uniquely different from one another, or the same. Clearly state your claim. Use climate, physical features, vegetation and wildlife as your evidence, proving or disproving your claim. Provide a concluding statement that supports your argument.
