FREEBIE- United State Picture Book List in the preview :)
SCOOTIN THROUGH THE STATES and other card games
Way 1: Scootin Through the States
Each student gets a card on his or her desk. They will also get a recording sheet. When the teacher says, “Name That State” the students quickly write down the state name and/or capital pertaining to the card on their desk. I give one student a bell and when I give the look, he or she rings the bell and the students know to turn the card over and check their answers. They may do a silent YES!!! Or Bummer! Then I say TRAVEL to the next state. The students repeat until game is over. I usually let them play for 20-30 minutes.
Common Core Evidence Writing:
I am always trying to find ways to help students provide thoughtful evidence. #commoncore This is a fun, but helpful activity for students. The activity should be done after the students have learned about different states in the United States. The more knowledge the students have, the better these will turn out. I have given you two different templates.
Please ask me ANY and ALL questions before purchasing!
