    What study of the states would be complete without a little coloring? Well, it's not really an essential, but it can reinforce the learning. Attractive blackline coloring pages are brimming with information about each of the 50 states, educating as they are colored. Which state is the Sunflower State? The Land of Opportunity? Which state's motto is "Ever Upward"? Informative captions provide each state's nickname, motto, flower, bird, tree, capital, principal rivers and mountains, notable attractions, and other special information.

    Accurate outline drawings of each state are prominent, with a small inset map of the United States showing its location (by shading). Some details, like mountains, rivers, and lakes, appear on the state. The capital's location is starred, but no printed names appear - so you can have your children do a little research and mapwork for extra benefit. This also makes the book usable as a reproducible map source. Surrounding the state are other blackline figures of the state bird, flower, related plant and animal life, and other significant features (New York, for example, includes the Statue of Liberty). Now your students can color their way to U.S. geographic literacy!

    Make geography fun with this poster coloring book. Each page is a portion of a US map, detailed with cartoon-style facts and land marks. Simply color the pages, remove from the book, and assemble into a giant 44"x47" poster! Some of the printing runs over the perforation lines, so it might be best to remove the entire page from the book instead of ripping on the perforation to ensure the most accurate poster dimensions. 24 pages. – Laura

    This maze book is filled with 50 intricate mazes - one for each of the United States. The cool thing about these mazes is that each is in the shape of a featured state. Capitals and large cities are labeled, and the actual maze is contained inside the outline of the state. Puzzlers must make their way from the state's capital to one of its major cities. The passages in the mazes are fairly thin and somewhat challenging, so older students won't be disappointed with overly-easy solutions. Answers are included at the end. 60 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This colorful atlas is a great way to introduce students to the basic geographic features of the United States. The atlas is divided into several sections. The first section, Map Skills, explains how to read a map. It briefly covers the topics of scale, latitude/longitude, and different types of map projections. The next section, U.S. Themes, has a political map, physical map, and themed maps that show climate, elevation, average temperature, land use, population density, and more. The United States History section presents maps that represent places, populations, or events at different times in our country's history. For example, there are maps that show the routes of early explorers, battles of the American Revolution, the Underground Railroad, and the Vietnam War. The U.S. Regions section takes a closer look at six areas of the country - the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West, and D.C., Puerto Rico and other islands. Each region has a political map, images of state flags, list of largest cities, and small thematic maps that show land use, population density, and average temperature/precipitation. An index at the end of the section gives the page number, latitude, and longitude for cities, landforms and bodies of water. The book concludes with the Atlas section, which contains political and physical maps of the world, the Western Hemisphere, the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. It also has a map of U.S. time zones and an index. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Bold black lines and one-sided pages are options I look for when choosing coloring books. I like to use markers rather than pencils, and the bold lines are easier to work with. Some designs in this book are big and bold while others have a lot of detail. There are over 60 to choose from! They would be beautiful completed with layers of colored pencils, watercolor pencils or (my favorite, Prismacolor) markers. Add this book to a unit study on architecture or historical buildings. There are windows with both modern and ancient themes. Some have a very Tiffany Studio look, but there are a wide variety of styles to experiment with in various palettes: a soft, dark, shades of blue, high/low contrast, etc.

    Contemporary history resources frequently skip over the Christian heritage of our nation. In fact, I would say many of us were never taught that every state in our great nation intentionally acknowledges God in their constitution. Thankfully, this new reference book strives to set the record straight, teaching children tidbits of Christian history from each state along with directly quoting the constitutions of all 50 states in reference to God.

    Organized by date of admission to the union, there are 3 dedicated pages for each state which covers an overview including the state bird/flower, song and motto and a ranking by area and population. Important historical dates, state facts and famous people along with weird or unusual attractions are included, along with the constitutional quote and Christian history or facts about each state. Also included is brief look at Washington, D.C. and a summary of the inhabited and uninhabited US Territories. Colorful pages, full color photos and illustrations, and loads of vital information for your history and geography studies makes this a must have resource for your home or church library. 160 pgs. pb ~Deanne

    This reproducible workbook and curriculum guide is from YWM, publishers of the Heroes of History series comes. Though a great companion to the series, it stands alone and doesn't require the use of the biographies. Each of the 50 states (with an extra for the District of Columbia) receives 2 reproducible worksheets in the book. The main worksheet (identical for every state) prompts students to research and find such information as date of statehood, state motto, current population, natural resources, number of representatives in Congress, and more. It also has students identify features like bodies of water, highest point, state capital, bordering states, and more. Students draw and label these features on the second worksheet for the state, which is a black and white outline map of the featured state. A very effective and interactive way to teach state facts to students. The book includes several appendices with valuable items like additional maps and exercises (for the 13 colonies, the Louisiana Purchase, etc.), additional assignments like oral reports and creating timelines, a list of resources for state information, and more.128 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

       This is a gorgeous hardcover book loaded with color photos, maps and illustrations. The text is very readable (i.e. not boring) and informative. Organized by region, each state is summarized through four pages that include a brief timeline; information on natural resources, physical features, and climate; and fascinating ‘did you know’ points. One page is dedicated to our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. and children are familiarized with the U.S. Territories through the two page spread at the conclusion of the book. Additional facts & figures comparing the 50 states, additional book and web resources and index conclude this exceptional resource.

    This activity book is full of mazes, word searches, crossword puzzles, and trivia about the 50 United States. States are grouped by regions (New England, Northeastern, Mid-Atlantic, Southeastern, Southern, Midwestern, Western, Southwestern, West Coast, and Non-Contiguous), and each region has one or two worksheets that provide fun puzzles about that area. Black and white illustrations with speech bubbles also share facts and statistics about that area. The information doesn't go into great detail about each state, but it does a good job of showing the highlights of each state and what they're most known for. In the middle of the book is a map of the United States with room to place a sticker on every state. Included is a two-page spread of 75 stickers. There are 50 license plate stickers which show how the plates look in full-color. These are great to put on the supplied map whenever you get a chance to visit each state. The other 25 stickers are also included, which feature famous monuments and other objects that kids can place wherever they want. A complete answer key for all the puzzle pages is included. The perfect book to bring along on those family road trips (or for some imagined traveling right at home). 24 pgs. ~ Rachel

    Lavishly illustrated with maps, photographs and reproduction paintings, this family reference has appeal for Americans of all ages. Defining the character of America in three words - optimism, action and energy, this National Geographic book will teach and entertain its readers. Chapter 1 begins with the settling of America and the people groups who have made us who we are collectively. Profiles on William Penn and Pocahontas are included along with an interesting article entitled, "Can America be a 'City on the Hill'?" which explores America's religious ideals and the reality of greed and materialism. The second chapter looks at the birth of America including early wars and the constitutional convention. Profiles of Thomas Paine and Abigail Adams are included, and the great historical debate between federalists and anti-federalists is summarized. Chapter 3 covers our expanding nation and profiles Thomas Jefferson and Nat Turner. Chapter 4 offers a look at women's rights, slavery, the Civil War and reconstruction with profiles on Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. Industry and Empire are the focus of chapter 5 with profiles of Andrew Carnegie and Chief Joseph. This is followed by the New Deal and the growth of government. Chapter 6 profiles crusader Ida B. Wells-Barnett and Huey Long. Chapter 7 looks at war, prosperity and social changes from 1941-1968, with profiles of Joseph McCarty and Martin Luther King Jr. The final chapter looks at 1969-present with profiles of Sandra Day O'Conner and Cesar Chavez. A key events timeline is found across the bottom of each chapter's first page which adds to the value of this compelling resource. As we consider where America is today, the author leaves us with the discussion point of more or less government in the economy, which is a question that we will continue to grapple with as we strive to progress as a nation.

    Also included is the entire text of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Gettysburg Address and the Declaration of Sentiments as well as a listing of websites to explore, historical places to visit, and many other helpful resources. Whether you utilize this for school research or a coffee table book to be set out and enjoyed, there is much to appreciate within these pages. HC. 240 pgs. ~Deanne
