This book is a great resource for learning about the 50 states. Each state is one page & gives a brief description of the state with illustrations. At the end of the book they have a bibliography of books & websites they pulled info from which is great if your child wants to do more research about a particular state. ( )

This book can be used to show students examples of other students' work about the states. Students can relate more to work that is written by other students of their age and grade. It gives students ideas about how they can become an "expert" on a particular state. This shows how a class can make their own book about the 50 states. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0448431319, Mass Market Paperback)

The kids in Ms. Brandt's class create a special report on the United States of America, with each child doing research on ten states. There's a double-spread map of the whole U.S. and a page for every state jam-packed with trivia, interesting facts, handwritten captions, and jokes. At the end of the book is a map showing how the United States grew over time, a spread on the presidents and what states they hailed from, as well as a "bibliography" of books the kids used in their research. Written by a team of well-known author/artists, this 64-page Smart About History book is a great guide for kids.
