Around the USA with the Enchanted Homeschooling Mom

August 1, 2015

in Blogging, Cultural

Geography is a big part if the curriculum in our Montessori class.  We love talking and learning about the different continents and cultures around the world.   I have been looking for resources to learn more about the country we live in- the United States- and I was absolutely thrilled when I came across the collection of printables made by Jill, from The Enchanted Homeschooling Mom.

Around the USA

Jill has an entire series of FREE (yes, free) printables for every state in the USA.  Each pack includes

  • Creative Writing (Make a Travel Brochure)
  • Door Hanger (Completion Certificate)
  • Handwriting Practice
  • Puzzles
  • Research Project
  • State Bird
  • State Capital
  • State Flag
  • State Flag Wall Card
  • State Flower
  • State Location
  • State Landmarks
  • State Wall Card

She also has a free introductory pack to help you and your students keep track of all you are learning about the different states. I’d also suggest grabbing her Christmas Around the USA pack for some extra fun (Available to EHM members).

Want more ideas?  Jill has collected other resources to help you round out your studies of the United States in her USA State Studies for the 2012-2013 School Year post.

I am a member of Enchanted Homeschooling Mom’s site and I did not even realize that she had so many resources for learning about the states! Thank you for sharing this. We will be now be printing these out and trying the activities.

We have used both the state study and the Christmas around the USA packs for different projects and loved both of them! Great resources!

We are huge fans of Christmas around the USA! Thanks for sharing these great ideas!

This post is misleading. The states things are “free” for paying members of her site.

Seemi August 3, 2015 at 6:40 pm

That’s not true Megan. I was able to download them and I’m not a member of her site. Make sure you’re clicking on the correct download links… Located near the bottom of each post, just above the membership button.

Thanks for rounding up USA resources so we can see all of the wonderful things from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom’s site. I love the state story stones. Sharing

Jill August 5, 2015 at 2:08 pm

Thank you SO much for sharing and helping to spread the word about my free state study resources. I am so grateful that you took the time to share posts from my site and participate in this blog hop that words just simply cannot express how touched I am by your generosity while I battle this illness.
