The U.S. 50

Our 6th grade Social Studies teachers just recently worked on a project in which students researched information on a state in order to create a travel "brochure". The students were able to find all kinds of wonderful sources, but one of the favorites was The U.S. 50!  The site opens to an map or drop-down menu where a state can be selected. After choosing a location, each page lists basic links that provide a snapshot of information at a glance. These topics include the history, geography, and tourist attractions of each state along with the traditional state symbols, flowers, and even license plates. If you are planning a quick trip out of state, you may just want to visit the site yourself!
