Product Description
Discover New Mexico with this activity packet! Students can learn more about their own state or discover another state. This is also a great way for adult ESL students to learn more about this new country they call home!

I have used this activity by assigning each student a different state to research and then present to the class as a commercial for people to visit "their" state. The students loved this activity, and they learned so many interesting things about the United States. There are many other ways to use the materials, and there are a variety of activities in this collection that can be used to suit your needs.

****If you need more than one state, purchase the bundle to save!!****

Download includes the following:

* A United States map that highlights the selected state and shows bordering states for the students to identify and label.

* A short pre-research activity to have the students write what they know about the selected state and what they would like to find out.

* A quick reference activity to have students find and label the major cities of the state and find out a few fast facts about the state.

* A state scavenger hunt.

* A graphic organizer to make notes about the information they find from their research.

* A worksheet to identify and research an influential person from the state.

* A state map with major or important cities labeled and a worksheet to investigate a specific city.

* Assignment to create a commercial about the state.

* A research credit worksheet to keep track of where the information or pictures came from as they research the state.

* An acrostic poem using the letters of the selected state.

* Graphic organizer for writing an opinion paragraph about the state.

* Graphic organizer for writing a compare and contrast paragraph to compare two states.

* A research closing activity to summarize what the students learned about the state that they researched and what they would still like to know about the state.

* A large blank map of the state that can be decorated with drawings or pictures of symbols related to the state. A PowerPoint version is also included in case they would like to use clip art to decorate their maps.

* Grayscale versions of any worksheets that have color.
