Product Description:

Traverse your way through the United States of America in order of statehood with these spiral-bound state studies. Developed for two different age groups, both books help students discover how the United States was formed over the years by introducing the states in the order in which they became states. In the book for older students, lesson plans at the front of the book provide teachers with an outline and a small timeline of important events surrounding the statehood of that state. This section also holds five review lessons and quizzes to be assigned periodically. The body of the book contains the state-specific pages; each state is allotted three pages to provide students with a complete overview. The first of these pages holds interesting facts about cities, firsts, inventions, and other boasts of that state. At the bottom of this page, students can fill in other fascinating facts they discover about the states through their own research. The second page on each state is the data page; this covers the state's nickname, motto, symbols (bird, tree, flower and flag), historical sites, information on the economy, and a small map work section. Students decode the nickname and motto, read the passage on historical sites, cut and paste the correct state symbols from the back to the spaces provided, and use other appendices to answer the questions on the state's economy and complete the map work. The last state page in each series offers a brief, interesting reading passage on a notable event from that state. Appendices at the back provide the answers to the state data activities as well as the review lessons and quizzes.

In the newer book for young learners, much of the same format is followed; students still receive four fun worksheets for each state, which cover state symbols, mapwork, special people, date of statehood, capital city, motto, and nickname. Suggested teaching schedules are still provided and this book is even more focused on building character, patriotism, Christian (pid, dsc) values, and a love for geography. Many younger students won't be able to read the text in the book, but will still benefit from having the information read to them. Activities include coloring, cutting, pasting, and learning about interesting people from each state. Full-color symbol pictures are included for both levels. Steph

The body of the book contains the state-specific pages; each state is allotted four pages to provide students with a complete overview. The first of these pages shares interesting facts about the state, along with space for students to write their own fact and draw a picture. The second page is the data page; this covers the state's nickname, motto, some symbols (bird, tree, and flower), historical sites, and a small map work section. Students decode the nickname and motto, read the passage on historical sites, cut and paste state symbols from the back of the book to the spaces provided, and complete the map work. The third page covers the state flag and seal (with an explanation of both), a list to fill in about industries and products important to the state (answers can be found in the appendix), and a "test" on the state's abbreviation, capital, and nickname. The last page offers an interesting reading passage on a notable event from that state. Appendices at the back provide the answers to the state data activities as well as the review lessons and quizzes.

Working in meteorology and Storm Chasing opportunities in The Plains States. Looking for a resource of documentation for experiences achieved as each State line is crossed.

I used this with my oldest child and found it was a valuable resource for state history from a Christian perspective. It was also fun to read the facts and paste the pictures of state flower, tree, flag and seal in the book.

Would you recommend this for the oldest age group being middle schoolers or can it be used for high schoolers? Would it need other sources besides geography of the fifty states?
User on Jun 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used 50 States Under God as directed in the Heart of Dakota curriculum, which gave different directions than what are stated in the 50 States Under God book. I had my 14 yo daughter use this book. There is some cut and paste for each state. She thought that a bit childish, so she spent a morning doing all the cut and paste so she didn't have to bother with it the rest of the school year. Other than that, she found the tidbits of information interesting and sometimes comical. This book introduces each state in order of acceptance into the union and constantly reviews location and state abbreviation, though there's not much review of the capitals. 50 States Under God is sufficient for geography of the fifty states, no other resources would be needed, though extra blank country maps with state outlines might be helpful if you find your child needs that extra help.
