Here are some great resources I’m using to accompany our 50 states study:
- United Tweets of America: 50 State Birds Their Stories, Their Glories
- Celebrate the 50 States!
- How the States Got Their Shapes If you missed How the States Got Their Shapes on the History Channel, you may want to check out the book. We learned a lot!
- Fast Facts About the 50 States: Plus Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. We we are using this book to find information for our state notebook pages. This book is full of fun trivia, and my boys love its colorful layout.
- Celebrate the USA: Hands-on History Activities for Kids Cute hands-on activities about the history of America. There isn’t any specific state-related stuff in here, but it has some good background information and simple crafts about the founding and forming of the US, as well as our national symbols. Only basic supplies are needed for most of the activities.
- The Train of States This one is also packed full of facts and helping us fill up our notebook pages. The author, Peter Sis has the coolest style of illustration. Each page has so much detail–we find something new each time we open it.
- yellowmaps.com is a good resource for printable and interactive state maps.
