Even without a printer, students can use this PDF document to guide them through the study of their state. You can have students download the Kami app to allow them to type directly on the PDFs. Want students to still work on pencil/paper? These pages can easily be dictated onto computer paper or lined paper... yes, even the maps and state flag! There’s a variety of ways students can turn paper/pencil work in for grading. It's really up to your abilities to accept physical work and the students’ access to technology. Here’s a few different methods:

- Deliver to school.

- Make a video with phone or camera and email/upload to class platform.

- Make a YouTube video presentation and upload to private channel. Send link to teacher.

- Take pictures and create a PowerPoint slide show. Email/upload to platform.

You'll also receive six EDITABLE pages (in PowerPoint) PLUS a pacing guide with discussion questions for each lesson!!!

Use this as an all-year resource or as a condensed unit! Mix and match the different sections according to your specific classroom needs.

This resource has been developed as a crossover lesson of language arts and social studies. History teachers will find this very useful in incorporating writing across the curriculum! English teachers will find this as a fun way to add relevant history to lessons on research methods. You’ll find writing prompts, poetry activities, letter writing, news research, and a few creative pages to keep your artistic students engaged!

Many of the pages are specific to your individual state, while others make for easy tie-ins from the national to state level (i.e. How did the Civil War/Industrial Revolution/Westward Expansion affect your state?)

How to organize: Have your students bring in either a folder with brads or a thin three-ring binder. Reserve a space on your shelves for easy reach all year long. These pages can also be shrunk down to use as interactive notebook inserts.
