50 basic fact state cards and 50 fun fact state cards. For every state, I have included two cards. One with basic state background facts (capitals, nicknames, state bird, state flower, and statehood) and the other with an additional interesting state fact.
This resource includes:
1) Stand-Up, Sit Down Activity- An excellent introductory activity as you begin your United States unit. Students will be moving around while learning all the basic facts on the United States. The game can be played multiple times. Simply make sure to trade cards!
2) Walk-About the U.S.A.- Another fantastic activity to get students moving around the room searching for answers to important state facts. Using the given state cards and an additional U.S. map, students will search scavenger hunt style for answers on the resource sheet I have provided. Answer key provided!
3)State Project Fun- This is a choice sheet in which students choose one activity per column. The project will enhance their state studies, as well as integrate important language arts and math skills.

About the Seller
Rule 1 Have Fun
I am fortunate to be a stay at home mom and wife to my two beautiful children and husband. Teaching has never left my heart because I think it's who I am. I seek to teach my children new things everyday while also encouraging their imaginations.
I firmly believe it is our job to motivate our students and to do so, we need to think like they do. I now have young children and it amazes me what I can get them to willingly participate in if I make it fun for them! Teaching is no different...students will retain so much more valuable information if we find fun ways to present it.
