State Report Guidelines
Our class will be working on a state report. There are several components to this project. The first will be a written report on the state of Arizona. We are going to do this in class as a sample of how the students will do their own reports. We will spend time in class working on it. However, when we get to the individual state reports, your child will need to work on part of it at home.
Each student will choose a state they would like to research. I need you to let me know which state your child chooses. It helps make the report more fun if the student chooses a state that has meaningful significance. An example of this would be to pick a state where a parent or grandparent was born, like Nebraska, “the Cornhusker State.” The student might have more interest in it because a family member came from there. Also when it comes time to share their report with the class, they might want to bring in popcorn to share, because it is one of the top corn producing states.
The second requirement of your child's individual state report is to bring in a poster board filled with various information attached to it. (Look under the Visual Aid tab for ideas on how to complete this.) This project is to be done at home and is considered a long-term assignment and due in class on the morning of Thursday, May 10th. Please feel free to add any additional items that you feel would help to add originality to the poster board. I will send home a poster board for your child to use in a few weeks if you need one.
The third requirement is to bring items from home that represent the state, such as food products, games, or special items distinctly from the state your child is working on.
The due date for the whole project is Friday, May 11th. This is the day the students will share their poster board, read their written report (which will be done in class), and share specials items from home about their assigned state. Parents and family members are invited to join us in watching their child’s presentation and join us afterwards to eat lunch in the Cafeteria.
