US Geography Resources

We had a great time studying United States geography!  One of the coolest projects during the study included research, some technology skills, writing and a bit of art.

We took some time to learn about famous national landmarks during the unit.  As a final project, I gave the kids a list of several landmarks from which they had to choose eight to research.  They created informational postcards to highlight what they learned.  You can see the front of each postcard shows a picture and the name of the landmark.  On the back, they had to write a paragraph of interesting information for each.

  2. This is an amazing compilation! We just moved to the USA from Canada and my daughter doesn’t have a lot of US geography knowledge, so this is going to be our go-to! Also, did you know all the states will mail you their vacation guides? Super fun to get things in the mail 🙂 Thank you for the work you put into this!!

  3. Yes! We did that many years ago when my older children were little. Such fun. Welcome to the U.S.! Enjoy the books!
