MAXIMUM SPEED LIMITS IN THE UNITED STATES is designed to complement the holiday for January 2nd - 55mph day. You can use it anytime. It is also a great way to help learners identify the 50 states. If you would like something custom, please contact me and I will do my best to meet your needs.
The first pages ask learners to color the states according to the color chart that identify the speed limit. Classroom teachers may want to save paper and project that page. Have learners begin by drawing a large star on their state.
Next you will find a pages so learners can design their own speed limit signs. One contains the words SPEED LIMIT and one is blank. I recommend printing these on cardstock, or mounting them to construction paper when finished. You can easily turn this into a writing activity by asking learners to write about why they think the speed limit they picked is beneficial to society. Is their speed limit for the bikes in the neighborhood, skateboards, cars, etc. Be creative with the assignment.
Enjoy your journey!
