On each state poster you will find the following:
** For their own name there is enough room in the bottom right corner for them to write it.
**Title: "All About..... " and then the state is listed
**State Bird- students will name the state bird. An illustration of the bird is there for them to color. They can refer to a picture while doing their research to get the colors. NOTE: some posters have similar looking bird images, but they may need to be colored different colors. For example, more than one state may have a Cardinal.
**State Flower- students will name the state flower. An illustration for the state flower is there for them to color. They can refer to a picture while doing their research to get the colors.

**State Flag: an outline of a flag is there. Students will need to research what the flag looks like and design the flag to match.

*****In addition, I have included 2 styles of writing paper if you want your students to use their research poster to write a formal paper.
One page also has a place for them to design a commemorative stamp representing their state. The other one has a camera and two photo outlines for them to illustrate or glue down snapshots of their state.
Your students are sure to have a blast researching their state!!
The finished product will make a beautiful hallway or bulletin board display. You can even use the cover in the pack as your title page for your display. :-)
