There is no right way to utilize these activities. Feel free to mix and match which ones you’d like to use in your classroom. Four activities are included for each state to reinforce knowledge of U.S. regions, state capitals, and state fun facts. For early finishers, "More Handwriting Practice" is included in this packet. I’ve included both tracing and copy writing options to cater to different mastery levels. Your students will need pencils, coloring supplies, safety scissors, and glue sticks to complete these activities.
The "Teacher Cheat Sheets" are designed to ease the burden of research for you. These cheat sheets include basic state facts and three engaging fun facts. You can find more awesome state facts at National Geographic Kids. For younger students, feel free to read the facts aloud as they work on their activities. For older students, these facts are a great supplement to your formal lesson.
For your convenience, the end of this packet contains instructions for the "Lift-the-Flap" activity. This activity is designed to give basic state facts in a fun cut & paste format. You will also find "50 States of the USA Fast Fact Cards." Laminate these cards for durability and use them as flashcards to supplement activities and games.
Lastly, this bundle also includes "Kinesthetic Classroom Activities for Learning State Facts." These activities are designed to encourage movement, knowledge retention, reasoning, teamwork, and fun for your wiggly, giggly, learners. Check them out!
