U.S. State Research and Writing Project


How would you like to teach state history in a new and engaging way? Your students will research an assigned state, write an informational piece about it, and then create a t-shirt themed on the state they researched! If you’d like to take the project even further, I’ve added a component for creating a PowerPoint and implementing technology!
