This week our class has been exploring Utah's geography. We have
talked about types of communities, landforms, resources and regions.
This activity included a picture sort of pictures from all over Utah
where we discovered Utah's three regions, the Rocky Mountain, Colorado
Plateau, and Great Basin regions. We decided that we live mostly in
the Great Basin region, but awfully close to the Rocky Mountain
region. All we have to do is drive a little bit up the canyon!
