I put this together as an overview unit on the states. It’s a great way to complete a unit study of the 50 states as a review. It can also be used as the core of the unit study. For younger grades, just completing the lapbook provides a solid unit study. For older grades, you can provide additional in-depth studies, reports, and assignments to turn it into a complete study.
