Our Fifty United States

If you are looking for some fun ideas to use when studying your state or all 50 states look no further. Here are some wonderful general ideas to use with any state. Then check out my individual states worksheets, coloring pages and activities.


  1. Make a notebook – Get a binder and some cardstock, paper – lined and colored, dividers if you want them, colored pencils, stickers and anything else you can think of to help in the making of your notebook. Add a few page protectors to slide things into that might not work on a piece of paper. You can have a notebook for each state or one big one for all 50!
  2. Make a poster of the state symbols.
  3. Make a salt dough map of the state.
  4. Do reports or “mini” posters – we make these on cardstock for our notebooks – on famous people, places or events in that state.
  5. Have your students pick an important event and pretend they were there. They can then write a letter to a friend telling them about the event. Another fun idea is to be a reporter for the event.
  6. Have a dinner featuring foods from the state.
  7. Make a section in your notebook – or make a poster – of the animals that live in the state.
  8. Same as above only plants and vegetation.
  9. Make a poster of natural resources.
  10. Make a weather chart for the state covering the last 5 years.
  11. Build a model of a famous place in the state.
  12. Visit the state or write to the capital for information on the state.
  13. Print a blank map of the United States and color each one as you add study it.

Now pick a state and get started!
