PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is a combination of social studies, geography, science, and language arts/writing. It involves high interest informational reading,map skills, and opinion writing. Students will be introduced to 9 towns that have the word "love" in their names. (Love Valley, for instance). So fitting for Valentines Day!

What inspired me to do this? I was actually looking for a town in the United States that was a designated special valentine mailings location from which I wanted to send/postmark my personal valentines. I found a couple of locations, and then I wondered what other cities were named with the word "love" in their spelling. Surprise! Not as many as I thought there would have been, but enough to work it all into a product...namely, this one of course!

These are real locations within the United States. Outline-only images of 9 states are provided. 3-6 pages of text and colorful pictures describe and give facts about each place. Based on having read this information, students match the town with the state. After the students label the map with the state name and
write the town name next to a point on the map, they are to fill in the "Love Notes" paper. Here they will briefly write what they liked about the town and answer some short questions about the town.
After all 9 towns have been ""studied", students will write a final assessment by answering the question "If you could stay in any of these locations for a month, all expenses paid, which would you choose and tell why".

States in this activity are Virginia, North Carolina, Illinois, Wyoming, Oklahoma, Nevada, Maryland, Colorado, and Arizona.

The product's pages have been arranged by city and state. In other words, everything that has to do with _____, Oklahoma will be together in the same section of pages. Having this format will make it easier for the teacher to make each section about a particular place into a packet.

What's included:
- 3 to 6 pages of information and pictures about each location
- outline images of each state
- vocabulary and definitions for each location
- "Love Notes" personal opinion and comprehension questions
- final draft valentine themed writing paper
