It would be a stretch to say that we’re a family of travelers. Even though my kiddos have not seen the world over doesn’t mean they can’t “know” it. I created this free printable book to help kids learn the fifty states through a doing a little research and digging and also having a little fun sketching and doodling along the way.
Crossing things off…..
We’re a home school family. Our school year is winding down. Yes, I know it’s only March but when the weather is yucky we hit it hard. As it begins to turn into spring we are literally crossing subjects off our list. Boom.
Adding things in….
When some of the “serious” book work fades away I like to have a few little projects and “big ideas” to work on lest my kids say they are bored. (Gasp. They know better.)
Knowing the fifty states and their capitals is one goal I have for my kids this school year. My oldest attended public school through the sixth grade and doesn’t know this. I have my Masters degree in education and have to say I couldn’t pass a test either. But, learn them we shall- together!
Fifty states, fifty pages…
Each page contains a few facts that your kiddo may or may not know off the top of their head. Mine will not know all of these facts. Thanks to the wonders of the internet and the amazing resources out there these facts will be easy to find! Instead of just writing all of the facts there is room to do some sketching as well.
It will take them a bit longer to draw a cardinal or Mt Rushmore or Buzz Aldrin than it would to write the words. By drawing and putting a bit more thought into the process some of that information will sink into their squishy little brains.
