We have a brand new product thanks to my son! I wanted something to help him review the United States but without coloring, and all of the fluffy stuff like birds, flowers, etc. Honestly I am not really concerned if he knows a state’s bird or flower. I want him to know the location, capital, abbreviation and how to spell the state’s name. I also wanted him to practice reading and writing cursive in a simple format so I added that in also!
And…USA State by State was created!
Each state has 1 page and he will write the state’s name, color in the state’s location and look up the capital and record it. He uses one of our United States Geography to look up the capital and abbreviation if he can’t remember it.
In addition to the pages for each state, there’s also a sheet at the front to record each state in alphabetical order. The map gets filled in as he works through the states one by one.
Another fun page I included is a sheet to record states you’ve been to! This one is really popular with my kids already and has brought up much conversation!
I used our binding machine to bind the pages together to create a book that’s easy to work through. Not sure how I made it so long as a homeschooler without my binding machine!
After every 10 states, I added in our States and Capitals review pages also. You can download those for free here!
Take a peek inside here where I shared a Facebook Live video! You can also see what I am using for my daughter this year!
