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!
This is a PowerPoint used in class to introduce the state projects presentation. In the powerpoint there are links to website about each individual state, there are links to videos, and games to play.
You must download the vide in order to open the links!
Click HERE to look at my example of a Glog that I created about Minnesota. You will each create a Glog about your individual state, this project is due in 2 weeks. The purpose of this assignment is so that I know you are working hard on your projects, and not putting off your research till the last week. Be creative, and have fun with this!
You must include: 2 videos, 3-5 images, and 4 text boxes about your state.
This is a fun video that gives a little bit of information about the different states!
