Introduce your students to the state of Kentucky with this printable handout of 2 worksheets (plus answer key). Your students will read a brief overview of Kentucky (location, capital, flag, state bird, state flower, abbreviation), write 'Frankfort' next to the star on the map to show the capital, trace the northern border of Kentucky blue to show the Ohio River, color a small map of Kentucky and surrounding states, and then use the map and compass to answer 10 questions on page 2. Colored pencils or crayons and a pen or pencil are needed for this activity. No other prep needed.
For use with Interactive Notebooks: After the handout is completed, students can cut out the map of Kentucky and paste into the notebook under the topic of United States / Sub-Topic: Kentucky. Under the map, your students will write a summary in their own words of what they now know about Kentucky. They can also cut and paste the state bird (Northern Cardinal), state flower (Goldenrod), and flag onto the page for Kentucky. Collect handouts for all states to add to notebook.
