This is the step by step instructions to send home with the students on how to have each student create a state. I, then, put them together to be able to assemble the United States Map! I send home these instructions with a printable of the state (I find these online) the student is assigned and once they bring them back I assemble to United States Map. Depending on your class size, some classes may need to have students complete two states. THIS IS A PROJECT ASKING FOR COMPLIMENTS!
