Habitats
The Five Regions of Georgia

  • The state of Georgia extends from the Atlantic Ocean into the Blue Ridge Mountains. The state is divided into five regions based on its physical geography.  
  • The regions are the Coastal Plain, the Piedmont Region, the Blue Ridge Region, the Valley and Ridge Region, and the Appalachian Plateau
  • Each of the regions has its own unique features. There are natural wonders, animals, and rivers that make up the different parts of Georgia.
  • The Coastal Plain Region covers the southern and southeastern half of Georgia and is the largest region of Georgia.
  • The Piedmont Region is a hilly part of Georgia and is known for its red clay hills.
  • The Blue Ridge Region is found in northeastern Georgia north of the Piedmont.
  • The Valley and Ridge Region occupies only a small part of the state and has lots of waterfalls.
  • The Appalachian Plateau Region is in the far northwest corner of Georgia.
  • The Blue Ridge Region, the Valley and Ridge Region, and the Appalachian Plateau all make up the Mountain Region.
  • Georgia mountains have high elevations.
  • The higher the elevation, the colder and windier a place is.
  • Soil on mountains changes with elevation.  The soil at low elevation is moist or wet. The soil at high elevations is dry and rocky. 

 

 

Math Vocabulary

  • digit:  any symbol used to write whole numbers.  The numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are all digits.
  • place value:  tells what value a digit has in a number.
  • standard form:  :  shows digits.
  • word form:  uses words.
  • round:  when you change the value of a number to one that is easier to work with.

(Example:  73 rounded to the nearest ten is 70, because 73 is closer to 70 than to 80.)

(Example:  173 rounded to the nearest hundred is 200, because 173 is closer to 200 than to 100.)

Rules for Rounding

  1. Identify the place to be rounded.  Draw a circle around the digit in the place you will round.
  2. Draw a line under the digit to the right of the circled digit.
  3. If the digit with the line under it is 4 or less (4, 3, 2, 1), the circled digit stays the same.
  4. If the digit with the line under it is 5 or more (5, 6, 7, 8, 9), the circled digit increases by 1 (one).
  5. The digit with the line under it and any digit to the right of the circled digit will change to a zero.
