Product Description
This FREE resource is a stand alone project that can be turned into a FULL WEEK worth of activities. You'll find 5 region activity pages and capitals/abbreviation resource sheets. Plus, I've included a thorough teacher's guide giving you plenty of suggestions on how to turn this into one awesome mini-unit!

These maps are also located in Elle Madison's customized state history projects.

Please note - All state's will be available by JULY 2017. Several states are added each week!

















These complete notebook units are the perfect companion to your annual state studies. Your students will use the internet to research a variety of topics to include: economics, government, geography, politics, current events, higher education, weather, historical figures, Native Americans, state symbols and icons, historic timeline, state flag, folk songs, Westward Expansion, the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution.

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

Each state notebook journal 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.

In this unit you will find:
