Our 50 States
Our 50 States is a one-year American geography and literature course designed for students in first, second, third, or fourth grade. It combines the flexibility and richness of a unit study with the simplicity of a textbook-based approach. In addition to narrative lessons about people and places from around the U.S., students learn through songs and hands-on activities.
Our 50 States has a total of 104 lessons for use over one school year (26 units of 4 lessons each). All of the instructions for how to use the material are included in the main book so you do not need a separate Teacher's Manual. The daily instructions are very easy to follow. You will spend two days studying each state, plus two days on Washington, D.C, and two days on the five major U.S. territories (American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.)
The Our 50 States Curriculum Package includes the four books listed below, enough for one child to complete the curriculum. If you are using the curriculum with more than one child, you can purchase additional Atlas Workbooks or Lesson Review books separately.
