Get your students reading and researching as they learn about the fifty states! This activity requires them to use resource materials to discover information about each state. It aligns with the common core research component as well as informational text structure. The unit includes:
- 30 pages in all (two mini book pages per page)
- a map page for each state
- two information pages for each state
- two cover pages (students' choice)
- samples of completed pages
This activity allows students to gain confidence as independent workers as they become more skilled at finding information. See my preview for details. Let me know if you have questions.
