I am new to this creating my own curriculum thing, so please bear with me. I have my kids working on a HUGE lap book on the fifty states. This is so large that I actually have them doing this in a 1 subject note book. They are really into it. We are doing one state a day. They need to read about the state and tell me what region it is located in, the name of the state, capital, state bird, flower, major crop, statehood, a fun fact that they remembered, and draw a picture of something that is representative of the state. My problem is I would like to do a hands on project that ties all the states together. I don't know if we should do this by region or something else? So very confused and not super creative in this department.
I have a TON of ideas for science related stuff.....just at a loss for geography and history.
