50 States Unit Study
Learning about all 50 states in the United States of America can be fun, most teachers present the subject very dry. Mostly since there just isn’t enough time in the day to cover everything they would like to. So, the 50 States Unit Study was created for both homeschool parents and teachers too. This unit allows students to explore each state with in-depth research, while adding in art, writing skills, reading comprehension, and a bit of math. The perfect addition to end your homeschool year when your homeschool student/s are bored of everything else, and you want to have fun while still learning.
The main part of the State unit Study is designed for your students to go at it alone! The questions consist of almost everything they can find in a good United States of America resource, there are good ones listed on the included resource page. The unit gets to the point of helping your student explore the United States of America and learn about each the 50 states. No fluff. There is no excess or over exertion of printables, so students can stay focused. If You just want to hand them the unit printable and a book, you can do that!
