This product will come out best if it were printed onto cardstock and laminated for future use.
50 activity cards in color! This product can be used in a whole group, small group, during independent time, centers or even used as an assessment.
Activities on the cards will introduce students to America’s 50 states. Students will practice important map skills (identifying states and their bordering neighbors, using a compass rose and finding state capitals). They will also be reinforcing skills in Math, Reading Comprehension, Geography, and U. S. History as well as learning the origin of state names and when each state was admitted into the union.
A reproducible U.S. map is included to help students see where each state is located in relation to the rest of the country. Reproduce the map for each child. As students complete each card, have them color in the corresponding states.
A reproducible answer sheet is included so teachers and students can keep track of completed states. Students write their answers on the sheet (in complete sentences). The cards are designed to be reusable and are not to be written on. An answer sheet is included to check every card.
The activities are aligned with the Common Core State Standards and include the following strands:
Number and Operations in Base Ten
(NBT.1 –Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100)
(NBT.2 – Fluently add and subtract within 1,000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value and properties of operations)
