Geography is a big part if the curriculum in our Montessori class. We love talking and learning about the different continents and cultures around the world. I have been looking for resources to learn more about the country we live in- the United States- and I was absolutely thrilled when I came across the collection of printables made by Jill, from The Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.
Jill has an entire series of FREE (yes, free) printables for every state in the USA. Each pack includes
- Creative Writing (Make a Travel Brochure)
- Door Hanger (Completion Certificate)
- Handwriting Practice
- Research Project
- State Bird
- State Capital
- State Flag
- State Flag Wall Card
- State Flower
- State Location
- State Landmarks
- State Wall Card
She also has a free introductory pack to help you and your students keep track of all you are learning about the different states. I’d also suggest grabbing her Christmas Around the USA pack for some extra fun (Available to EHM members).
Want more ideas? Jill has collected other resources to help you round out your studies of the United States in her USA State Studies for the 2012-2013 School Year post.
