3 Activities for Teaching the States
音量
Hi! This is Meghan Lynn Allen for About.com, and today we'll discuss three activities to teach the states.You need to teach the 50 US states and their capitals, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun. And just because you're homeschooling and not in a traditional school setting doesn't mean you can't have fun with performing arts.Why not teach your schoolchildren a song, and help them remember all 50 states in alphabetical order. Ray Charles wrote the lyrics to Fifty Nifty United States. Not only do students memorize the states alphabetically, in order, but they get the last verse, where they get to highlight something about their own state.Seeking another fun activity to teach the states? Why not make it edible? Have a little fun with cooking and the states at the same time. You'll need a state map for reference. Each student should have a different state. States could be picked out of a hat or assigned to each student. You'll use a basic dough recipe. Some recipes call for peanut butter - that all depends on the allergies of your home schooled child. And you'll need some M&Ms or some other candies to highlight the cities of your home state.
You, as the homeschool teacher, will pre-make the dough. The student will shape that dough into their state, and they'll use the M&Ms as a color code to their cities. They'll also write a key or a legend for each city; for example, red M&M=Annapolis.Seeking a different activity from performing arts or making food? Why not consider poetry? Not only does it take learning to a new level, but it also teaches your children about poetry. It could be a limerick, it could be a haiku. Have them write a short poem to their favorite state, or have them write a different haiku each day for 50 days until they have one for each state in the country.
