In preparation for next year’s study of the USA I am creating State Printable Packs for our unit – From Sea to Shinning Sea! Studying the US States is a great way to get to know our great country, meet famous Americans, learn about natural habitats & their animals, famous landmarks, history, and have LOTS of fun!! I am thrilled that my Preschooler & 1st grader can learn side-by-side! The packs have lots of activities suitable for kids Preschool – 5th+ grade! Did I mention it is FREE!!
I will share more about how we are using them later, but basically we have BIG binders with a tab for each state. Each state pack has:
  • State Fact sheet (blank & filled in – I suggest using the blank one for older children and the filled in one for younger children who do not have the skills or patience to fill it in)
    • Nickname
    • Capital
    • Chief Products
    • Brief History
    • Things to Sea
    • Weather
  • State Fact Sheet #2
    • Where is the state in the US?
    • Longitude & Latitude Map Skills
    • Math Activity as you travel from state to state
    • Did you Know section
    • Population & Size Graphs
  • Map Work (including time zone activity)
  • Number practice (from 1-50) – practice writing and counting
  • Plant Cards (common to the state)
  • Animal Cards (common to the state)
  • Practice writing letters A to Z –twice
  • OTHER – You will find about 20 sheets of other activities. These will incorporate educational skills with facts about the state. For example you may use a measure to see how tall the Missouri Gateway Arch is compared to the Willis Tower. Or you may learn skip counting with the Wright brothers. Play a KFC Chicken Sight Reading Game when learning about Kentucky or roll your Way through the Indianapolis Speedway. Learn about Nocturnal animals and coal. Or build a shape car while learning about Michigan’s Henry Ford. Each pack is different in this area – so browse for the activities that fit your child’s needs, interests, and skills.

  2. I began using your states printables with Missouri. The first thing I did was buy a map of the USA and put it on a wall by our kitchen table. Amazing what a map does to conversations!!! Thank you. :) I will be adding your link to my monthly learning log so other Moms can peruse these resources. thank you again!!

    PS I got a photo tour of Helen Keller's birthplace on my blog right now. come check it out! :)

  3. I love these resources and I can't wait to begin using them with my daughter!! However, I also noticed that some of the actual state information pages were missing from the Wisconsin download. Just thought I'd let you know!

    Thanks!

  4. I am also missing the first few pages. Was that intentional or just an oversight?
