Inspired by some online resources, this step-by-step slideshow is a teaching tool to help students easily locate the 50 United States using visuals, catchphrases, and slogans.
Using 1-3 slides per mini-lesson or just making it a quick Do Now, my students were able to accurately name and locate the states within weeks. Some of my students also made flashcards based on the slides.
Note: This is a free partial slideshow. Please feel free to get the full PDF, or the Powerpoint that you can customize to your liking!
