This is a notebook that is ready to print and use with your students. Each page has space to either color or glue in a picture of that state's symbols as well as spaces to write information about the state including the capital, the motto, postal abbreviation, and the date it became a state. It starts with the symbols of the USA, and each state is listed in statehood order. Included in the file are the flags in order of statehood and the US flag.
While this starts as just a black and white document, once your students are finished they will have a colorful notebook with the major symbols of each state and information about them and our country.
There are some great resources I found that have the state symbols ready to print, cut, and glue right into the spaces.
Suggestions: While you can cover 1 or more states a day, there are many wonderful resources out there you can add to your notebook to cover government, the revolutionary and civil wars, and geography. I would also take the time to add more pages with information about your home state.
When you purchase this product, I will send you links to all the resources I used (many of them free!) while teaching with this product.
