States and Capitals
As part of the 5th grade social studies curriculum, students must demonstrate that they know the names and locations of the 50 states and capitals of the United States. In February, students received a study guide packet with study materials for each region of the nation as well as a list of quiz dates. After being quizzed each week on a different region, students will take a comprehensive exam in June on the 50 states and capitals. In addition to learning the states and capitals, each student will research a state in computer class and design a travel brochure promoting tourism to his or her assigned state.
