The students pick one state that they research and learn about all year long. It is a practice of reading text and finding information through reading materials (instead of being able to google search and have information handed to them). I have been building our library of individual state informational text but have found Scholastic Which way USA Book/Magazine Club which highlights each state in a magazine along with a map. This magazine is a great resource for students to use in assisting with their report. With each fun and engaging puzzle book and map set, children will learn about geography, history and culture, and even practice school skills — all without ever leaving school! After they collect information on their note catchers, they each write and do an oral presentation about their individual states. This set of magazines will be a great addition to our state library.
