What better way to learn about our country than to take individual “field trips” to the states? With the help of this project, that is exactly what your students will be doing! The four parts to the state project are:
1. research paper
2. pictorial map and state flag
3. alliteration booklet
4. presentation day
MAP: This is a colorful map sketched by the student which gives your viewer an idea of the shape of the state, its geographical layout, and its resources.
STATE FLAG: This is a hand-drawn representation of the flag of
each student's state.
ALLITERATION BOOKLET: This part of the project demands the students' creativity and imagination! They will think of six sentences which will incorporate alliteration with pictures and interesting details about their state.
RESEARCH PAPER: This is a formal paper written by the student in a properly composed and logical format. Components of the research project include:
1. cover page
PRESENTATION DAY: Students bring in a food/prepared dish (should be something that is ready to eat) that is “native” to their state. They dress in a costume that represents their state and give a speech telling others why your state would be a great place to visit (or live!)
The kids LOVE this project and learn a ton while incorporating cross-curricular components such as writing, art, and geography.
