  6. What region of the country has the highest incidence of melanoma?

  7. Brainstorm with a partner and come up with three reasons for why melanoma is the highest in this region.

  8. Select the “table option” and find which three states have the lowest incidence of melanoma in the United States.

  9. Brainstorm with a partner and come up with three reasons for why melanoma is the lowest in these locations.
