We have just begun our study of United States geography. One great tool we recently bought was Name That State game. We are using this along with the book It Happened In America: True Stories From the Fifty States. We are going to use information from this book to add our own homemade cards to the Name That State game so we will review information we have learned and make the game more challenging. Each of the Shadybrook scholars will be required to know how to spell each of the states and capitols. I also found this website for recipes from each state. The Alaskan Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating was very good. Our next experiment will be Alabama Chocolate Pecan Jumbo Christmas Fudge Pie. I'm normally not much of a hand-on type of teacher but I'm making an exception in this case!
