This one page sheet can be used as anything from extra credit work or turned into a class project.
Students are to be assigned, or choose one of the 50 states. They must research the information the worksheet requires. Sections like the State Bird and State Flag students can draw or print and paste. Or if you prefer a paperless classroom, upload this to Google Documents and have students copy and paste the State Bird or State Flag.
Information the students must research includes: State name, abbreviation, state flag, bird and flower, its population, statehood year, capital, nickname, governor, climate, major industries and attractions and a section for students to include other things they learned they might want to include.
This can be assigned as a single assignment or have students complete this as a class "50 states book".
