Kids can now practice their skills in vocabulary, reading, writing, social studies, math, and science while getting to know the state they love! Each Know Your State activity book features more than 250 pages of interactive learning activities that guide kids through the history and geography of their great state, while simultaneously reinforcing what they are learning in school.
Learn the difference between foothills and plateaus by labeling an illustrated map; find out what a petroglyph is and how to write a Tanka poem about the place where you live; predict the weather by learning about the three main types of clouds; create a map to scale of your bedroom using a map grid; and build a working compass from a needle and a cork.
The Know Your State series will help them find themselves immersed in creative, standards-based learning all year long!
