Printable Passport with State Stamps

Posted in Homeschooling

Printable State Study Passport

As you know, I recently started putting together the state notebooking pages, and I started to think about other fun ways to study the states. I remembered the stamps that you can get at the different National Parks (and some state parks) that allow you to stamp you own “passport” when you visit. I knew that some people had used a printable passport when they studied different countries and decided it would be a fun idea to incorporate into the study of the states.

Blank State Study Passport Pages

I designed a basic printable passport that can be personalized with the student’s picture and other personal information (like a real passport). It’s easy designed to be printed back to back to allow for more use of the pages. Honestly, cutting the pages out takes longer than the assembly of the passport. I folded the cut out pages in half and stacked them making sure the personal information pages line up properly. Then it was just a matter of stapling the pages together in a book style. The passport pages are small enough that you can use a standard stapler. There are enough pages for all 50 states plus a few more. You can always print out more pages if needed.

State Study Personalized Passport Pages

For the state “stamps”, I thought it would be fun to use the state quarter designs as the stamps as they give a bit of information about each of the states. Because I didn’t want to individually cut out all of the stamps, I designed them to be able to be printed out on the round stickers from Avery (affiliate link). It also meant that there was no glue involved – just peel and stick! (Yes, I like making my life a little easier when possible. **grin**)

Overall, I’m pleased with how it turned out. In these pics, I printed everything in draft mode as I was testing out the alignment before printing the “real” passport. (I always test out printables in draft mode, so I don’t waste ink in the process.) The actual passport, passport pages, and stamps are darker with more detail. I decided to include stamps for the US territories as well in case anyone wanted to use those.

    I work with school age children before and after school, and over the winter break out theme is “Road Trip America.” We had discussed doing something with a passport, so I’m delighted to this!

    THANK YOU! I came across your US lapbook while prepping for our history plan next year. I wanted to add the quarters to that somehow and started to make my own printable quarters on an Avery template when I found yours. Thank you again. I am doing this for 7 children and this will save us an immeasurable amount of time.

    • Jennifer, if you click on the printable passport link, you can download the printable passport with quarters. They are designed to be used on the Avery circle stickers, but you can print them out on regular paper and glue them on the passport.

  6. What a wonderful idea! My son LOVES coins and my daughter loves stickers! This may be the BEST way I’ve seen so far of teaching them about the 50 states. Thank you!

    I am trying to download your wonderful resource, but I do not have a gmail account, and so it will not let me download it. Is there a way you could send it to me through email? Thank you. 🙂

    • I’m afraid the file is too large to send via email.

    I just ran across this. Im going to use this for my 3 year grand daughter who has been traveling everywhere we have gone. Her mom said we never went to all those places growing up! I said that was because we were poor and raising 3 kids! Grand kids are the best!Thanks again for this!

  10. These are so great. Last summer (and continuing this summer), my kindergartner and I went through the states learning about them and doing activities. Cutting out the coins and gluing them in her state journal was part of the activities and she loves em. Thanks for this!
