Piedmont…been there, live there…done that!

We started our week with a quick review of the land, water and major cities we talked about in the Coastal Plain/Tidewater Region (I wonder when I’ll stop calling them both!)

Tuesday we moved over the FALL LINE (ask your child to give you a definition of fall line)! We learned that many cities sprang up on the fall line and we talked about why that happened.

Did you know that Piedmont means “foot of the mountains”? We’ll be talking about those mountains next week and how the word, “Piedmont” truly fits!
