Washington, D.C.: Poster Activity- research and fill in information about our nation's capital.
Let your students show what they know about Washington, D.C. using this 8.5 x 11 poster (landscape). This poster will look great hanging outside your classroom and parents will enjoy reading them when they are sent home.
This activity would work when doing a study on Washington, D.C or our nation's capital. It could also be used when talking about states/districts. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
