Another teacher in my school created these with her 4th graders for our great state of OHIO! They turned out great! The flaps made it super easy for the kids to put the information in sections. The sections she included on her flapbooks are:
Major Cities, Industries, Borders, Presidents and Symbols
You could allow the students to choose the sections they want to include! Other possible sections are:
Basic Facts, Interesting Facts, Natural Resources, Plants and Animals, Government…
The possibilities are endless! She used information from the Internet and books for the research. I have a super inexpensive packet for students to use in order to create a state report. Check out the link here!
