Where’s Wade? is a set of 28 Task Cards filled with clues to help your students in Grades 4-6 find the state in which Wade is hiding. This is a FUN way to teach U.S. geography and map skills as your students play detective and eliminate states using the clues until only one state is left. The clues provide practice and reinforcement of map and compass directions and following basic directions.
The Task Cards are ideal for a game of Scoot (directions are included), as well as for partner work, individualized instruction, or as a whole class activity.
Also included are:
• a Student’s Answer Sheet for Where’s Wade? (to record the names of the states being eliminated for each clue)
The number of states to be eliminated for each clue is noted in parentheses
for Task Cards with more than one state for an answer.
• a Student’s Checklist (students place a check mark by each state eliminated for each Task Card)
• an Alphabetical List of State Abbreviations to use with the United States Map for students’ reference
• an Alphabetical List of States and Capitals for students’ reference
• an Answer Key
• a map of the United States
• directions for playing Scoot
