One of my favorite topics I ever learned about in school was the 50 States.…
Studying the 50 states is something I still remember because I absolutely loved it! It was probably my favorite part of 5th grade. Now, I get to teach my girls the same stuff. The states and capitals song, where all the states are on the map, when the states became states, and more. They're all working on their own 50 States Lapbooks, so I wanted to share some of the resources we found along our journey. After we are finished with our state lapbooks, we'll work on countries.
