We are learning the 50 states in 5th Grade this year! Students will map new states throughout the week, and test periodically to show what they know! Students need to know location of each state and that state's capital. Below is a list of states we have covered or will cover for our first test October 7.
*Students have several practice activities on Google Classroom to prepare for the 50 States tests. If computer access is not available at home, please contact me and I will happily send home practice pages for your student to prepare for these and other tests!
