    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!

    Here's a really tasty supplement to any study of the United States! While state studies often include state birds, flowers, capitals and other facts, most don't devote much time to "state foods." This book includes easy-to-follow instructions for preparing a complete meal - main course, side dish, and dessert - typical to one eaten by people of each of the 50 states. When too tempting to pass up, some states also include additional recipes for breakfast foods or snacks. Fun state food facts pepper the pages to keep you busy while the meal is cooking. As they say, "When in Iowa, eat as the Iowans do." - Steph

    Jumping rope is great, but if you want something a bit different and have three or more players, Chinese jump rope is a classic activity that kids love! Instead of moving the rope and jumping over it, the rope remains stationary and the jumper moves around the rope in a variety of jumps. When I was young, my friends and I used to do this to fun chants, and we always had a lot of fun. This rope is a good value; it's a continuous thin loop made of stretchy, durable material. The two rope holders stand with their legs about a foot apart, and five or so feet away from each other with the rope around the outside of their legs at about ankle height. You want the rope taut, but still loose enough so it can stretch. The jumper starts with both feet inside the two sides of the rope and jumps in and out. A classic, simple rope that everyone will love!
