Writing a State Report
John and Patty Carratello
A step-by-step guide to help your young researcher complete a state project. From notecards to bibliography, this resource will introduce the process of writing an in-depth state report.
In Writing a State Report, students will identify their state on a map, provide historical information, and identify physical and political features. They will draw the state flag, seal, bird, flower, and license plate. They can include a song or poem about the state, and information about weather, resources, national parks, historical sites, or other sites of interest. They will include information about government, education, and the people who live in the state. They can create a visitor's guide and give their opinions about what they have learned. They will conclude their reports with a bibliography of their sources.
