I cannot wait to tell you about this hands-on history activity I was given a chance to review. I am absolutely thrilled to have been able to review Make-a-State Activity from Homeschool in the Woods which is part of their Activity-Paks series. Homeschool in the Woods is a hands-on history company that offers multiple product lines and plenty of historical learning for everyone.

Before I get started with the review, I want to tell you about their most recent addition to the hands-on history company's product line:

What is Make-a-State Activity?



Make-a-State Activity Pak is part of the Homeschool in the Woods Activity-Pak line of products which is just one example of what this hands-on history company offers from their multiple line of products. If you've ever done a unit study that uses a Lap Book as the central focus activity, then you have a pretty good idea about how this works. However, the Activity-Pak series offers more than just a lap book. It also provides suggestions for games and additional activities that correspond with the study. The nice thing about the Make-A-State Activity Pak is that everything is right there on the computer in a download, and you click on the links to print the materials as you need them for study and to make your Lap-Pak. There is always a Timeline included along with all of the printables needed. This study allows you to make a lapbook for each of the 50 states, and this particular study also came with a State Folder Game - Name That State.

Each of the 50 state lapbooks cover 20 activities:


  1. Key State Facts
  2. Origin of State Name
  3. State Motto
  4. State Symbols
  5. State Song
  6. State Industry / Agriculture / Climate
  7. State Wildlife
  8. Regions
  9. State Geography
  10. State Government
  11. State Seal & Flag
  12. State History
  13. Famous People From...
  14. Native Tribes
  15. State Landmarks
  16. Sports Teams
  17. State Quarters
  18. Recipes
  19. State Vocabulary
  20. State Timeline


Bonus:

  1. State Pages that provide summary information about each state as well as Washington D.C.
  2. Name That State File Folder Game

How Did We Use It?





  

  

  






  



  

  



  

  



I previously had the privilege of reviewing Project Passport World History Study: The Middle Ages, and HISTORY Through the Ages Project Passport World  History Study: Ancient Greece from Homeschool in the Woods, so I was excited to get to take a look at the Make-a-State Activity-Pak.

My 10-year-old absolutely loves lapbooks and anything hands-on or artsy/craftsy. So, this is right up her alley. I was so excited because we began the study of the states last year but never finished so this couldn't have come at a better time. Also, we are planning a trip to WI and MI this summer, so I wanted my daughter to be fully knowledgeable about her surroundings as we visit.

What Did We Think?

I absolutely love the in-depth study that corresponds with the hands-on activities in these Paks. Of course, it requires making sure your ink cartridges are full and ready to print before you begin, but the final product is a nice, easy-to-file record of your child's work. Ultimately, anything that is hands-on is a hit with my youngest, so Homeschool in the Woods hits the mark for us since it's a hands-on history company that offers multiple product lines, with the history information-packed Activity-Paks series being one of them.
