Fully flexible, Maps of the United States is designed so that you can use it as a workbook for one student or duplicate the activities of your choice for classroom or family use. In addition to more than sixty reproducible student pages, Maps of the United States contains many mapping activities for exploring both the historical and contemporary United States, a multitude of other student explorations and conceptual social-studies exercises from which you can choose, and an appendix featuring print and online resources.

With Maps of the United States, students can

  • Map each state's geological features and major cities using attractive outlines that indicate major rivers, lakes, and mountain ranges.
  • Discover interesting facts about each state with reproducible state worksheets designed to initiate a student's research.
  • Delve into history through mapping activities related to the Thirteen Colonies, the American Revolution, the Louisiana Purchase, and the Civil War.
  • Learn about the historical and contemporary United States by mapping its regions, extreme points, geological characteristics, annual precipitation, population density, expansion, and more.
  • Explore the United States through oral presentations, creative writing, report writing, three-dimensional map modeling, and other hands-on activities like creating time lines, brochures, and children's books.
  • Reference some of the many good books and online sources featured in the Resources appendix.
Maps of the United States is an excellent companion to the Heroes of History biographies, providing another creative vehicle for learning about the United States and its history. None of the activities require use of the biographies, making this resource accessible to everyone.

This book is a wonderful supplement to US History studies, Biography Studies, State studies, and geography. I am going to incorporate it into our study of US History for 5th/6th grade (using YWAM's history plan on this website) along with History Pockets and a basic history book. I liked the maps a lot and the activities on the information sheets as well as the activity ideas at the back of the book.
