Product Description
OBJECTIVE:
To summarize the events which led to the admission of fourteen new states in the years after the Civil War.

TIME:
2 class periods

Give each student a copy of pages 96A - 96D only. Pages 96E and 96F will be distributed at the beginning of the second class period.

Fourteen states in the West joined the Union between 1867 and 1959. Students will read about early events in each of these states and unscramble key words, names, and terms which complete the sentences.

Nebraska (1867)
Colorado (1876)
North Dakota and South Dakota (1889)
Montana (1889)
Washington (1889)
Idaho (1890)
Wyoming (1890)
Utah (1896)
Oklahoma (1907)
New Mexico (1912)
Arizona (1912)
Alaska (1959)
Hawaii (1959)

Next, class members will do a fun Map Exercise that requires them to label all fifty states and include the year when each joined the Union. NOTE: Students will need a map of the United States in their textbook or in an atlas that identifies individual states.

To conclude the lesson, students enjoy playing THE GAME OF THE STATES. The class will be divided into groups which will compete against each other in a contest involving speed and accuracy. Each group has 30 minutes to answer as many questions as possible by filling in the space in each sentence with the state being described.

Group members can use textbooks, encyclopedias, and any other available reference materials.

All group members must fill in the spaces with their team’s answers during the game.

At the end of 30 minutes, each team will submit one copy of their answers to the teacher. Names of group members should be listed at the top.

Questions are divided into three levels of difficulty, and are worth 1, 2, or 3 points each. A perfect score is 100. The team scoring the most points in the allotted time wins THE GAME OF THE STATES.

Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
