State Project

State Project

Author: Gillian Ayer

CSS.SS.5.9 Students know the location of the current 50 states and their capitals.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.5.6 With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others: demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of two pages in a single sitting. 

Students will conduct research on one of the 50 states, and create a power point and 2-page paper giving information about the state.  Through out the month there will be mini assignments due in relation to this assignment such as, creating a Glog (see my example below), take spelling tests on the 50 states (this week the first 25 in alphabetical order will be tested, next week we will over the second 25), using maps to locate the 50 states, and more fun activities!
