What you need:
foam board
glue gun
glue sticks
printed states
lots of different material
tape
marker
ย 

Perfect project to do when it is raining. My kids did this project in one day and I would recommend to doย one state once a week. Since my older two knew most of the states already we did it all in one day. Use different color of materials and be creative. Not all of the states will be the size that they should be. California was way smaller than should have been.

How to do this project:

  1. go online to www.50states.com and print out each state or to http://www.enchantedlearning.com/usa/states/
  2. Find a window or door and take the outline of the individual state and a piece of material and tape together to the window.
  3. With marker trace the state to the material
  4. cut out the state
  5. once all the states are cut out put on the foam board to make sure the fit together
  6. glue on the states

Have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This is so creative!! I love it! I was just thinking the other day that I need to come up with some fun geography projects for this year and your project is perfect. I will just start with one state per week, like you suggested, and see how it goes. Thank you so much for this wonderful idea!
