This is a packet for the western region of the United States. It is intended for older elementary students, probably 4th or 5th. It could be played as a internet scavenger game. There are 3 puzzle challenges. The first one is finding answers to some questions about each state. The second is figuring out which state nicknames are real and which are fake. The third one is a face matching game where they have to figure out which face goes with which state. The students could work independently or in groups to find the answers. Each game lends itself well for getting the students to discover facts about each state that are not always known or obvious. It is intended to be fun! The answers are provided.
