Students will have the opportunity to collaborate with each other, working in groups to identify states on a map and recite basic facts about some states.

At the end of the lesson, the students will be able to define a state, recognize a map of the fifty states of America, and name some of the states.

    I am currently homeschooling my children. I needed some material besides songs on yo tube and this gave them the whole lesson. I wasn't expecting it for free. There is a donation section and now I have the option to pay when I get some extra money.

    Outdated Map

    I was disappointed that the map that was included with this lesson did not include Hawaii and Alaska. It only included the 48 contiguous states.
